Lisa Ezzard will be at City Lights Bookstore to present her book, Vintage, on Saturday, January 18th at 6:30 p.m.  Returning to her roots on a six-generation family farm, Lisa Ezzard comes home to Tiger Mountain to become a wine maker and grower. Humbled and ruled by an ancestral love of the land and its seasons, she prunes in the winter, trains in the spring and summer, and harvests in the fall. Through Ezzard's heart and hands Dionysus comes alive in the Southeastern Appalachians of Georgia. We can follow the year's vintage and taste the wine. For all those wishing to return to the land, Vintage brings to the farming life a whole new palette.
