The Vintner’s Luck

Elizabeth Knox

An unconventional novel which engages grand and glorious themes on an intimate, human scale. Longlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction. Burgundy, 1808. One night Sobran Jodeau, a young vintner, meets an angel in his vineyard- a physically gorgeous creature with huge wings that smell of snow, a sense of humour and an inquiring mind. They meet again every year on the midsummer anniversary of the date. Village life goes on, meanwhile, with its affairs and mysteries, marriages and murders, and the vintages keep improving - though the horror of the Napoleonic wars and into the middle of the century, as science marches on, viticulture changes, and gliders fly like angels. Longlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction.
