We are very close now to publishing my first book: Paradise Rescued – From Cabbage Patch to Cabernet Franc. So we thought that we would share a picture of the front cover together with the contents of the back cover:-
“In 1992 when English born and educated David Stannard purchased a small holiday villa in Bordeaux, he never dreamed that one day he would be the accidental creator of a globally successful boutique winery brand. A ‘home away from home’ retreat from his ‘regular life’ running a petrochemical plant seemed like paradise, but when changes in the land zoning and a subsequent property development avalanche threaten the rural sustainability of ‘his’ centuries old village, he had a duty to maintain the local heritage. Paradise Rescued is David’s story of how his tiny once-cabbage patch is transformed into an award winning international success – in many ways beating the French at their own game. Trial and error, but above all, the community of Cardan came together to create something truly unique.”
