The original French edition was Gourmand Magazine‘s Best Wine Book of the Year (2011).  Now, NBM is proud to release The Initiates in English for the first time.  Here’s what the reviewers are saying:

“This intensely thought-provoking graphic novel makes us pause to consider our relationships with other people and asks us to think about who we are, what we do, and how we perceive and relate to the world around us”

Publisher’s Weekly

“It’s hard to imagine a more pleasantly told story.”

The Comics Reporter

“(An) engrossing piece of comics reportage.”

A.V. Club

“I was inspired, by the end, to better appreciate just how much hard work goes into a delicious wine or a beautiful comic. This would make a wonderful gift to any artist, or those aspiring to be.”

Comics Worth Reading

“This book will teach [you] something new in an entertaining form.”

New York Journal of Books

“A book that sticks with you long after you put it down… An amazing piece of work.”

Comics Waiting Room

“Beautifully rendered…”


“Beautifully designed…highly recommended in every respect…will certainly make my top five graphic novels of 2013.”

Ich Liebe Comics!

“A compelling read no matter where you are in your wine journey.”

Wine Harlots

“A page-turner…perhaps the best book ever for explaining, viscerally, the toils of a terroirist.”
