  1. Dear Mr. Furrow

    I don’t know if you are familiar with my blog which features, in English, information and profiles of Swiss wine and winemakers. It may be of interest to your readers. I’m including a link to the most recent post, a review of Alex Maltman’s excellent book Vineyards, Rocks, & Soils. Perhaps you would consider including future posts in your round-up of worthwhile things to read. Many thanks.

    Sincerely, Dennis Lapuyade
