The Geography of Wine: How Landscapes, Cultures, Terroir, and the Weather Make a Good Drop
by Brian J. Sommers
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.35

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful guide to the concept of terroir, 3 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent read for anyone who wishes to understand the concept of terroir. Who knew that geography is more than the landscape? It's the interaction between geology, climate, transportation and other factors that affect human development and our relationship with the foods we grow and eat. It is written simply without pretension but gets across the concepts and explains why Bordeaux developed as it did and what makes it unique and distinct from Burgundy. I really learned a lot.

This review is from: Pomegranate Soup (Paperback)
This was a lovely insight into what it's like to be a foreigner in Ireland. The recipes that win over the locals are so tempting, I have bought all the ingredients and am working my way through the collection. So sad that the author was found dead in her cottage at such a young age.

This review is from: Kapok Pillow - 40x60 cm (Misc.)
Good product design. The kapok material is stuffed into a zippered case that is covered with another zippered case. It comes very full and you can control the squishiness by removing some of the filling. Very high quality construction.

This is not only the story of their five year circumnavigation aboard Blackwattle, but also a chronicle of how their experiences slowly reshaped their perceptions of the world...and of themselves within it.
