Wines of Loire, Alsace and the Rhone and other French Regional Wines completes Mitchell Beazley's Pocket Guide survey of the wines of France, and reveals the rich variety available across this wine-growing nation. Great French wines are not just contained within the classic wine-making areas of Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne - this book reveals the exciting quality to be found throughout the rest of the country.

The book is divided by region, and covers over 600 wine producers. At the beginning of each section, the styles of the wines to be found there are explained and the region's countryside described. Useful locator maps and a list of the wines within the region's appellations are also included for easy, quick reference. The wine producers are then grouped alphabetically, with information on where to find them, their wines (with top recommendations) and when to visit.

For anyone wishing to explore characterful country wines, classics such as Vouvray and Chateau neuf-du-Pape, and unexpected quality bargains, this guide is essential reading.
