Adelante follows an unfulfilled young man as he leaves his home in New York City and finds work at a winery in rural South America. He makes friends, makes an enemy, and falls in love. After some friction with his girlfriend drives them apart temporarily, they commit to a new life together and move to her family's vineyard where they live and work together. When continuing in his new life means raising the child of another man, he is forced to reexamine his notion of an ideal existence. Partly a love story, mostly a story about how we deal with change and uncertainty, Adelante explores what really defines meaning in life. Interspersed with images of wine country and a winery at work, Adelante will appeal to wine aficionados and non-drinkers alike. If read carefully, Adelante offers the reader a wealth of information regarding the process and production of winemaking. Readers less interested in the specifics will appreciate a glimpse into the daily working life of rural/industrial worke

Review:

"Benjamin's rich debut novel ... moves at an unhurried pace, allowing characters to slowly reveal themselves and their pasts ... feels authentic, not overly gritty or idealized. Expert details about the culture and process of winemaking are seamlessly woven into the narrative, and lush descriptions ... may have readers reaching for a glass ... A smooth, mellow read with notes of inspiration and drama, and a satisfying finish." - Kirkus Reviews
