The Son of the Vine

Original title: El hijo de la vid
Synopsis:

The crisis that devastated both countryside and urban areas in Spain at the end of the nineteenth century is decimating the Riojan vineyards. But in spite of this discouraging, desolate backdrop, Miguel knows that sooner or later he will see what everyone tells him is just a fanciful dream become reality: matching the great winemakers at their own game and producing his own wine; one with a full body and exquisite bouquet. El hijo de la vid is a moving story that takes us to the heart of the wine region and shows how hundreds of country-folk and small businessmen lived and suffered through to develop one of the most famous wines in the world.

One man’s love of the land and determination to fulfil his dream combine in this evocative novel to tell the story of Riojan winemakers and Spain’s most distinctive wine.
