Informative, fascinating, imminently practical, Christopher Fielden's A Traveller's Wine Guide To France is the ideal guide for touring the French countryside and enjoy the immense variety of vintages and vineyards of the world's greatest wines. All the wine growing regions of France are covered with excellent background histories and descriptions, along with a wine tasting classification system, travel tips, advise for visiting a winery, tasting basics, buying wine in France, the top grape varieties, even eating cheese along with the wines and dining tips while in France. A Traveller's Wine Guide To France is the ideal guidebook for all dedicated wine connoisseurs vacationing or traveling among the French!
Learning about wine involves, tasting, reading and travelling. Since serious trips are more than a couple of days and usually on one's vacation time, it pays to have a tour guide. Christopher Fielden is an importer and polific author who has lived in France.Perhaps in the 21st century will have have a headset guide as about as museums have - only beamed down from a satellite. But in the mean time Fielden is the best there is. I have just successfully road tested this book for three weeks in France.Fielden is knowledgeable (he also wrote Exploring Wines & Spirits, the text for the Wines & Spirits Education Trust in London - probably the best wine education body in the world) and he is a good travelling companion. Happy wine trails!!
This has been aa helpful book for planning our wine trip to France for 2016. Great details on each wine region.
