Adventures in the New French Wine Country

“Camuto’s lighthearted book is a particularly enjoyable read…a scrumptious collection of stories about wine, food, vineyards and winemakers.”

Beth Hiser, Bloomsbury Review

Palmento

A Sicilian Wine Odyssey

“Mr. Camuto extracts fascinating and illuminating details about Sicily, bringing to life the characters, conflicts and family dynamics that define a culture and its wines. It’s a beautiful, enthralling work, eternally wistful and hopeful, much like Sicily itself.”

Eric Asimov, New Times

South of Somewhere

Wine Food and the Soul of the Italian South

" 'South of Somewhere' is close to my heart. Each chapter is about experiencing the joy and perseverance of incredible iconic winemakers from Italy's mezzogiorno who have preserved lesser-known native grapes through heroic efforts. In this book, Robert brilliantly brings them to life. We are so fortunate to bear witness to this living history of Italian wine today.”

Shelley Lindgren, owner-wine director A16 restaurants
