    3. Such a fantastic quirky little book Steadman is known for his Cardinal Zin label, yet this book is one of two books devoted to wine regions around the world Steadman s book is really about the art, yet his writing proves to be quirky, crazy, and very fun A welcome addition to anyone s library and a fabulous conversation starter.


    4. Fun foray into one man s adventures in wine Informative and entertaining in an only some what subdued Steadman style The art itself is worth taking a gander at any time.


    5. Beautiful and funny illustrations with interesting but fragmented text The most engaging writing was Steadman s journal of starting his own vineyard.
