Welcome to your tour of the wine-growing world! Wine has rolled its barrel from the shores of the Black Sea to the mountains of the Andes, following humans and their dreams. But just how did a Pyrenean grape variety end up in Uruguay? And by what means were grapevines able to reach Japan? This book goes back through time to retrace the grape's conquest of the world, stopping in each wine-making country, from the oldest (Georgia) to the most recent (Poland), to discover wines past and present, while looking to future producers in places such as Tahiti and Sweden. The atlas works on a spread-by-spread basis
This is a great reference book for wines and the regions that produce them. The maps are fantastic and really informative. Sit and read over a glass of wine or two!
