Pisco Patrimonio The Book


A new book called Pisco Patrimonio by author Adam Weintraub describes Peru’s famous pisco and how it changed Peru for the better.

“Pisco has an allure to those of us who have come to love it” – Pisco Patrimonio

Adam Weintraub is a photographer whose love for pisco has inspired him to write a book that delves into the history and life of pisco in Peru.

Did you know that there are eight varieties of grapes to make pisco?

In this book, you can enjoy the history and origins of pisco and also read about the different varieties and process of how to make it. You will even discover hidden treasures like the harvest festival that takes place each year in Peru.

Adam not only dives into the pisco process itself but also explores the world of the master sommeliers, who through their sampling, ensure the highest-quality batches, quality control, and production of Pisco.

If you have any interest in pisco, or you’re just curious to find out what all the fuss is about, then I would definitely recommend checking it out!

You can either get your copy by clicking here or you can purchase the book at the different Museo del Pisco locations listed below. The book will soon also be available at all airports and bookstores throughout Peru.
