In this paperback edition of his classic book The Winemasters,
Nicholas Faith tells the story of the wines of Bordeaux - the most
glamorous in the world. It is the history of a group of merchant
families, mostly from Ireland and Germany, who for two centuries
controlled the sales of the finest clarets and Sautemes. It is the
tale of the way the owners of the region's greatest estates and
chateaux freed themselves from the merchants' grip. Above all it is
a story of the fascinating men and women involved - from the
Rothschilds to dozens of eccentric chateau owners. The Winemasters
of Bordeaux brings the story up to date, including the way that
Bordeaux repelled the intrusion of the major international drinks
groups. More successful newcomers have been the French nouveaux
riches who have bought many of the famous chateaux.
