“There’s more to this book than George Taber’s vacation slides, which is why I can recommend it enthusiastically. Taber the hedonistic vacationer cannot shake off Taber the inquisitive journalist. Each chapter reveals some interesting and unexpected aspect of the wine, wine business or wine history of each region. The payoff goes much beyond wine tourism.”
—Mike Veseth, The Wine Economist

 
“With In Search of Bacchus, George Taber proves that what makes great wines also makes for a great story, as he transports us to the world's best wine regions and introduces us to the fascinating people who make the wine. My only complaint is he didn't invite me along on his journey.”
—Miljenko "Mike" Grgich,
Grgich Hills Estate

 
“As he weaves in engaging personal stories, Taber's experiences lend the book a travel memoir feel. But more impressive is his ability to encapsulate the history of these wine regions and of their wine tourism, particularly in light of their political, economic, social and geographical challenges. It makes for a very informative trip around the wine world.”
