"Frost can be fatal to a fledgling wine business... gorgeous glitter with a high price tag. On a winter's day it is beautiful, but on a spring day after budburst it spells devastation." For Sean and Caro Feely, a couple whose love affair with wine and France has taken them through financial and physical struggle to create their organic vineyard, it could spell the end. Until they receive an unexpected call that could save their skins This book is about life, love and taking risks, while transforming a piece of land into a flourishing vineyard and making a new life in France. AUTHOR: Caro Feely is a certified wine educator and writes from the organic vineyard and wine school in France that she set up with her husband. She spent 15 years working as a business and IT consultant with multinationals such as IBM and Accenture before following her dream to make wine in France. REVIEWS: "Caro Feely has written a careening memoir in Saving Our Skins. So impassioned that it could inspire you to drop all security, move to the backwaters of France, and bet your life, all for the love of making wine." - Alice Feiring, author of 'Naked Wine'. "Should be required reading for anyone who loves wine! Even a teetotaller will drink up every page of 'Saving Our Skins', for the fascinating behind-the-scenes of organic farming. " - Kristin Espinasse, author of 'French Essais, Blossoming in Provence' and 'Words in a French Life'
