Illustrated with specially commissioned photographs (wine usually seems to be made in attractive surroundings) as well as maps, the books in this series describe the wine-producing regions of each country. The authors recommend itineraries, list wineries, describe the local cuisines, suggest wine bars and restaurants, and provide a mass of practical information, much of which is not readily available elsewhere. * Itineraries and maps * Local gastronomic specialties * Hundreds of visitor-friendly wineries * Descriptions of local and regional wines * Museums and sightseeing points * Lists of wine festivals and exhibitions * Restaurants, hotels and wine stores * Reference section and glossary France is the home of many of the world's greatest wines; nowhere else will you find such a warm welcome awaiting you in the cellar. Every one of the country's wine regions produces a unique selection of wines, often made with grapes used nowhere else for winemaking. Christopher Fielden describes France's most important wine-producing areas, gives the background to the wines, and provides a guide to visiting the best producers. Hundreds of wineries that welcome visitors are listed, together with their addresses, telephone numbers, websites and opening times.
