This review is from: The Finest Wines of Rioja & Northwest Spain (Paperback)
I don't know the first thing about good wine, except that I like to drink it!

Planning a vist to northern Spain, I thought this book might give some insight on where to go and what to drink. My expectations were that it would be a dry, academic book. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a book that not only was rather readable, but had some really lovely photographs to boot - fantastic landscapes and some wonderful portraits. I was drawn into the history and the culture of the vineyards and actually learnt a lot, to the point where I'm going to take my wine drinking much more seriously from now on. I think this is a lovely book in every respect and the authors should be proud of it. Well worth your money if you're interested in wine or the region itself.

If you love the wines of Rioja and around NW Spain and are planning to go there and buy some wine and vist a few Bodegas then you really should take this book with you. Detailed and insightful with descriptions of the full range of tradtional and more modern wines and their producers. An excellent book.

Beautifull pictures, good all round indication on the about, maybe
a completer image about the companies' wine (all their wines)
should be systematically added, not just the best cuvees.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensablel book for Northern Spanish wines, 6 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Finest Wines of Rioja & Northwest Spain (Paperback)
I did not have high expectations on this book, I have some other book from the same collection, but actually I was quite surprising of the quality.

The book talks in other words about the Northern Spanish wines, not only about the very well know Rijoa. They get quite deep into other regions like Bierzo, Rias Baixas, Monterrey, Valdeorras or Ribeira Sacra. It is exquisite how the book presents some of the more relevant winemakers of those areas, that indeed are totally unknown for mostly of the Spanish people, even the wine lovers.

A great book indeed.
