Review Text

From the sherry of Andalucia to the world-renowned wines of La Rioja, every region of Spain is a wine producer, and some of the least known wines deserve to be listed with the best in the world. Yet most of the visitors to Spain miss out on the wine, and so much of the culture and history that go with it. This impressive book should redress the balance. The wine roads of Spain, though nowhere near so well developed as they are in France, take you away from the coast and into some of the most delightful parts of the country. This guide to those routes gives brief mention of sights to see and curious local information, but it is primarily a bible for the wine buff. There is detailed information on wines, lists of bodegas which can be visited, background features on wine museums and festivals and local gastronomy. In short, if you wish to discover the taste of Spain in its wines, this book is invaluable. (Kirkus UK)show more
