The essential guide to South African wines: Terroir and travel is the second edition of the illustrated Guide on the wines of South Africa. This Guide presents the existing wine-producing regions in the uncomplicated Wine Pockets system. Individual Pockets highlight a specific terroir unit along with local wine styles, providing insight into the unique qualities of each wine-producing area. The guide helps you to select a pocket, jump in the car, and do a day-drive to visit some of the unique wineries of that area. Detailed relief maps provide you with GPS coordinates and are backed up by downloadable waypoints and routes on the website www.cheviot-publishing.com. Every pocket takes you on a meaningful journey, discovering the terroir, viticulture, winemaking techniques and flagship wines of some of the premium producers. The wine tasting chapter opens the world to understanding, tasting and serving wine, while the SA wine collection explores the pleasures, and even profits, that local terroir wines can provide. This up-to-date, informative reference work provides vital local knowledge on the practicalities of visiting South Africa's Winelands. More than 300 commissioned photographs and full-colour illustrations will entice you to drive out and visit these places of great wine.
