Louisa and Alex Hargrave were pioneers. In The Vineyard, the Hargraves learn the joys and hardships of country life. They suffer droughts and storms while learning to navigate the glamorous but treacherous international world of wine. At the time, experts said that growing wine grapes on Long Island was impossible. Along the way, they discover that theirs is both a scientific and a spiritual endeavor.

The Vineyard is Louisa Hargrave's memoir of the endeavor and the price she paid to make her dreams come true. We guarantee the condition of every book as it's described on the Abebooks web sites. True pioneers, the Hargraves learned their trade from scratch and raised their children close to the land.

In 1973, against the advice of experts and the experience of history, Louisa Hargrave and her husband, Alex, bought a run-down 1680-vintage potato farm on Long IslandÂ's North Fork and planted ten thousand European wine grapes. Having begun her grape- growing adventure with the arrogance of youth and the assumption that she and her husband could figure it all out themselves, she was both humbled and transformed by the land, by her children, and by the generosity of those who helped along the way. At once wry and heartwarming, this is an odyssey as much about spirit and the connection to place as it is about the simple pleasures of a new wine.
