Caro Feely is an author, a wine teacher, speaker on agriculture, food and wine and a biodynamic winegrower in France. Her first published book Grape Expectations follows her journey with her family from city professional to rural winegrower.
The second book Saving Our Skins released summer 2014 follows the journey of turning a run down farm into an iconic vineyard of the region and delving into biodynamics.
Both books are at times hilarious but have a serious message about the Feely's organic transformation at Chateau Feely. Having seen farming from the inside Caro is impelled - like Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall with the chickens - to tell the truth about it. The truth about what modern agricultural of chemical fertiliser, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides is doing to you and your food and drink. Caro is working on the third in this series.
Caro is author of Summersdale's 'Wine: The Essential Guide to Tasting, History, Culture and More' released in hard cover and kindle November 2015.
