An inspirational guide designed with the globe-trotting wine lover in mind–vineyards to visit, seasons to go, vintages and organics to drink, and how to get the most out of each wine region.
The adventures featured in this atmospherically illustrated book will fuel the wine lover’s imagination with an almost endless array of vineyard visits, must-see sights, and must-do events–harvest festivals, vineyard picnics, wine-region weekends, tasting tours, wine-focused restaurants.
Designed to highlight the world’s most rewarding wine destinations, this guide spans the spectrum from traditional (a wine luncheon in Bordeaux or touring Portugal’s port lodges) to fun and quirky. Some ideas are active–a cycling tour of the Champagne region or grape stomping in the Italian countryside–while others are more urban, such as a tour of Vienna’s summer wine gardens or Rome’s iconic enotecas. Sidebar panels throughout detail what makes each region special and include lists of the top five local wines to seek out.
There is something here for all palates and all levels of expertise–from regular contributors to #WineWednesdays to the budding oenophile just starting out.
