The Wine Atlas of France: and Traveller's Guide to the Vineyardsby Hubrecht Duijker
The essence of the Atlas, and a quality that distinguishes it from all previous books on French wine, is the way it familiarizes the reader with French wine on its home ground. The beautifully detailed wine maps show the vineyards and boundaries, the contours of the land and the locations of wine estates. These maps are carefully cross-referenced to high-quality road maps, allowing the traveler to plan an individual wine journey around France.
The text works with the maps, giving details of wine routes, offering opportunities for tasting and buying wines, suggesting historic and cultural sights to visit, revealing restautants and hotels which local wine growers have recommended. It is a charming and visually seductive introduction to France and her wonderful wines. An invaluable companion for the traveler in France, and an incomparable guide for the winelover at home.
