Wines of India is one of the first books to focus on classifying the various wineries present in the country. “The book is trying to convey the stories of 50 wine producers in India, concentrating on giving a background on what is growing in the country.”
Peter noted that purpose of the book was to shed light on the wines being produced in the country and to enlighten its readers on different classifications of wines available in India and to increase the knowledge of Indian wine enthusiasts. “When you read the book, you can see that my intention was to really educate people who only see wines as red and white. The way I constructed the book was to tell stories of winemakers in India and bring an unbiased view to the readers so they can take the meaty bits out of the book and learn more about the wines of India.”
