'[Tom Doorley] is one of the best known commentators on food and wine, and this book is a reflection of his own views of life in this country. Whether you agree or disagree with Doorley's outlook on life, you'll enjoy Muck and Merlot.'
'.....the guy really can write. And he knows his stuff. Muck and Merlot is a richly-egged pudding of personal history, religion, gastronomy, social philosophy and gardening advice. This last is the best -- an inept and bone idle agrarian myself, I learned heaps from reading it'
'An engaging read celebrating 'the joys of his life....a book about food, wine and muddy boots'.
