Item description for Wine, Communism & Volcanoes: A Story of Chilean Wine by Elliott Rowe Joanna Walsh Walker...

Drive beyond the dusty provincial towns and the Chilean landscape is carpeted with 1?4 million acres of grapes that ripen perfectly in bright sunlight, warm days, and cool evenings. Labor, land, and grape prices are low, so Chilean wineries can make high quality wines at a fraction of the cost of those in California, Australia or Europe. Walker Elliott Rowe weaves a narrative of the Chilean people and culture, introducing the reader to many characters both inside and outside the wine business. The towering Andes Mountains are not the only item looming over the Chilean horizon-this progressive country, where the sentiment for socialism is strong, is still dealing with the ghosts of the former military dictator. Through his narrative, Rowe illustrates the irony of Chile's strong system of capitalism that leaves most people working long hours at low wages.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wine, Communism & Volcanoes: A Story of Chilean Wine?

A traipse through the Chilean wine industry  Jan 3, 2007
Easy and fun reading, this book gives an insider look at the Chilean wine industry, and the people who make it work. It also provides an interesting look at the lifestyles and culture of Chileans living outside the great metropolis of Santiago.
Not very analytical, nor pretending to draw any profound conclusions, the book is nonetheless a fun and interesting read.
It would have benefitted from better editing.
