Library Journal - Library JournalEmphasizing an understanding of the wine within the context of its geographical and social origins, this area-specialized, updated version of Johnson's excellent World Atlas of Wine (1985) is improved by the addition of precise maps and specific information on suggested hotels and restaurants. A calendar of wine events, touring maps, cultural and historical sightseeing information, etc., contribute to the guide's usefulness. Handsomely illustrated, authoritative, and well organized, this is a good choice for travelers who want to carry only one fine wine and food guide to France. Recommended for most public libraries.
