In 1994, the author first came to Aquitaine in southwest France to start renovating a friend’s property. His book tells of transitioning from leaving North Wales 10 years later, and then settling in France’s Dordogne department region. His story covers the highs and lows of his first 12 months in the country.

Colin worked the grape harvests with a French family near Monbazillac and at St. Emilion, learning to speak and understand the area’s colloquial language, which certainly isn’t the French he learned in school. To top off his love for France, he meets the Frenchwoman who is to become his wife when he is introduced to a pretty French lady at the local summer fête.

And it all happened "Après les Vendanges: After the Grape Harvest."
