Bon Voyage Vitis
Grapevine transatlantic travels and liaisons
a prequel to Vitis prohibita.
Grapevines travelled the world by ship following the interests and curiosities of adventurers, immigrants and botanists. In particular, the European colonization in North America brought about an intermingling of cultures and exchange of plants that both devastated and resurrected the world’s vineyards.
When Lucie Morton discovers that her own family history is intertwined with that of a vanished French-American grape, her quest to bring it back to Virginia takes her to meet home and passionate winemakers in beautiful and unexpected places.
