Berkeley-based wine merchant Kermit Lynch has been selling and distributing his favorite Italian and French wines for over 40 years. He's known for favoring wines that express their "terroir"-- a French term referring to the natural environment in which a wine is produced -- including factors like soil, geography and climate. Lynch joins us to discuss his career and his influential book, "Adventures on the Wine Route: A Wine Buyer's Tour of France," which is being re-released this month in a 25th anniversary edition.
