This is an excellent guidebook that came in handy when we visited the Loire. The book is now out of print and as it was published in 1996, it could use an update...some of the wineries listed were gone or the wine makers themselves have passed away; meanwhile there are newer restaurants and wineries that are, of course, not listed in here. I would be thrilled to have the author Jacqueline Friedrich update and expand her opinions. In addition, addresses for the wineries would be a good thing as none are listed, which made finding them tricky sometimes, and now that websites are common, perhaps those as well. Otherwise, an outstanding resource.
