"a fascinating read"
- Wine Folio
"Once I started to read the book there was no turning back... Beyond the Vines is a passionate, strongly opinionated and at times controversial account of New Zealand wine as Jules van Costello sees it. It is a gripping read – I devoured it in one evening."
- The Real Review
Jules van Costello is a wine professional, educator and writer based in Taranaki. He is the Wine Director of Cult Wine and Te Aro Wine and is a partner in four Wellington restaurants; Hillside Kitchen, Daisy, The Ramen Shop and Bōl. This is his third book (but the other two are about beer so they don’t count).
"I raced through this edition in the space of just over a day – ducking in and out at every tea break. It’s part opinion piece (Jules isn’t afraid of guiding you through his thoughts) and part New Zealand wine guide (the regions, grape varietals and styles are all covered), but overall does a splendid job of telling the story of New Zealand’s place in the modern, worldwide, wine industry."
