How Landscapes, Cultures, Terroir, and the Weather Make a Good Drop

Brian J. Sommers - Author

Book: Paperback | 8.26 x 5.23in | 304 pages | ISBN 9780452288904 | 26 Feb 2008 | Plume | 18 - AND UP

Wine is more than taste, smell, and appearance—it is a reflection of a place and its people. Why is Bordeaux a great place for red wines? Why do some places produce Rieslings and others produce Chardonnay? A fun and fascinating examination of terroir (the French word for the geography of a vineyard) this book takes connoisseurs—and potential connoisseurs—on a tour of wine regions, and explains the principles geographers use to understand the critical factors that make up the “wine character” of a place. From the Loire Valley to Napa Valley, Madeira to South Africa, Australia to Chile, The Geography of Wine is an entertaining and informative introduction to viticulture for worldly wine lovers everywhere.
