Overview

Join world-renowned wine writer Hugh Johnson in this beautiful homage to Tuscany. Experience its history, landscapes, towns, villages, people, cuisine, and above all, its wines and vineyards as he journeys through the sunbaked hillsides and moonlit valleys. Tuscany and Its Wines evokes the Tuscan magic from dawn to dusk. Traveling from town to town, through wheat fields and farmland, Johnson not only explores the Tuscan geography and wineries, but shares the culture and sites—from a beautiful cathedral in Siena to a good place for a drink in Monte Amiata. Johnson's illuminating descriptions, wisdom, and knowledge coupled with more than 100 breathtaking photographs capture the very essence of Tuscany and bring the author's passion for the region's distinctive grape varietals to life. Tuscany and Its Wines is for everyone enthralled by Tuscany's sacred marriage of light and landscape, food and wine, beauty and history.Andy Katz has spent the last 20 years taking photographs in more than 80 countries. His work is exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. He lives in Boulder, Colorado.
