The Secrets of My Life: Vintner, Prisoner, Soldier, Spy Written by Peter M. F. Sichel

“Peter Sichel was a true insider during the heyday of the CIA during the late 1940s and 1950s. From Berlin to Hong Kong, he served in a global secret war that was, by turns, gallant, necessary, dangerous, and wrongheaded. His memoir is clear-eyed, charming, and fascinating,”

Before being known as the man who brought Blue Nun, the German wine brand, to popularity, Peter M. F. Sichel led the life of an escaped prisoner turned spy during WWII. The Secrets of My Life: Vintner, Prisoner, Soldier, Spy is Sichel’s memoir, his latest great endeavor.
The once-prisoner, longtime spy, and lifetime vintner relives his experiences during WWII in his autobiography. Peter Sichel’s memoir is an extraordinary story—which needed to be cleared by the CIA before it could be released.

“Peter Sichel was a true insider during the heyday of the CIA during the late 1940s and 1950s. From Berlin to Hong Kong, he served in a global secret war that was, by turns, gallant, necessary, dangerous, and wrongheaded. His memoir is clear-eyed, charming, and fascinating,” says Evan Thomas, author of The Very Best Men: The Daring Early Years of the CIA.

Wine Spectator editor and publisher Marvin R. Shanken was all praises. “Peter Sichel is an iconic figure in the history of wine. With his European upbringing and early years in the CIA, his story is both fascinating and compelling. His success with Blue Nun is nothing short of classic marketing.”

This book was showcased at the 2016 Frankfurt Book Fair from October 19 to 23, at the Frankfurt Trade Fair, Germany.
