A terribly indulgent blog about Jack Kerouac and Wine

On the road Jack Kerouac

On the road Jack Kerouac

There once was a man who wrote in a stream of consciousness and brought the beep into the bop and made jazz all that it was for that 50s generation. The wine he drank was not the wine I might now drink, as he had no money. I don’t have a lot but I do get to buy wholesale from some of the best winemakers in the world, and there is always a tasting to be done. This is my homage to the type of wine that Jack Kerouac might have drank were he a customer of Red Nose Wine.

I think Jack might have liked a wine that wasn’t what the rest of the people were drinking, I think he would have demanded quality and intrigue, but he would very much appreciate that the wine should reflect the people who made it and where it comes from. So, this is my recommendation for Jack. We must remember, that he was a French speaker.

So, Jack, thanks for the inspiration – “the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars”.

These are the winemakers I have searched for.
