I really enjoyed The Wine Makers. Set in Tuscany; I visioned myself setting on a terrace sipping a glass of red wine.

This is the story of the Rosetta family and the award winning winery they run in California. Daughter, Caterina, learns secrets from her family's past. Some of the book was very melodramatic and the evil character was just a bit overblown...other than that, it was a fair summer read.

Brilliantly written - tight plot, characters' struggles are true to time period and completely believable. Just enough trouble to be true to life. I could not put it down and read through the 400+ pages in a flash.

I loved this book and didn't want it to end! It's a beautiful love story that spans a number of decades, alternating between Italy in the 20s and Napa Valley and Italy in the 50s, with wine and winemaking linking past and present. It celebrates the strength of women and the lengths to which they will go to protect their families and warns of the devastating power of secrets, all the while providing a good lesson on the grape's journey from vine to wine. An absolutely wonderful read!

Very disappointing , a flimsy story ,utterly predictable , romance at its worst. Meant to give only one star , couldn't undo rating!
