Do we treat wine as being 'elite' while those in Europe, in contrast, view wine as simply a beverage to be consumed with lunch or dinner? This is the supposition by author Michael Sanders.

Concord Monitor
"if people knew more about the winemaking process and the passion of those involved in it, then the mystery and pomposity would disappear. "What we've lost is that connection of the wine to the earth and to the people who make it. We don't know anything about how wine is made," Sanders said. "There's such care and passion that goes into every aspect of it."

Sanders has just released a book Families of the Vine that looks at three family vineyards over the seasons.
