"There are nearly 1,400 known varieties of wine grapes in the world but 80 percent of the wine we drink is made from only 20 grapes In Godforsaken Grapes, Jason Wilson looks at how that came to be and embarks on a journey to discover what we're missing. Following his growing obsession, Wilson hunts down obscure and under appreciated wines in Europe nd the United States. He looks at why these wines fell out of favor (or never gained it in the first place) and how geopolitics, economics, and fashion have changed what we drink."
