Overview

Rioja, a breathtaking region of northern Spain, produces some of the best wines. This exceptionally beautiful illustrated volume pays tribute to Riojan winemaking and culture--and it is the only wine book endorsed by the Riojan government. Ana Fabiano has traveled the world representing Riojan wines, and this work is the fruit of 20 years of research. She delved into Castilian books, conducted interviews with local experts, and spoke with generations of winemakers.  The result is a book from the heart that provides a historical overview of the area along with up-to-the-moment information on each valley, including its bodegas, grape varietals, wines, and producers. To enhance enjoyment of these wonderful wines, Fabiano provides a food section with recipes and pairings.

This book did not work on my Google Nexus tablet even though I played it on the B&N Nook application. Determined - I went to the Stamford store and picked up the hardcover. Beautiful book! Please format it for the Google Nexus so I can "carry" it with me to Spain and the wine region of Rioja.
