Country by country and region by region, the author journeys around the world, dropping in on both familiar and more obscure producers.

"Quite a rare find, in having the qualities of being both an entertaining read and a decent reference for wine enthusiasts, all explained in friendly layman's terms." (Wine & Spirit Magazine)" --Wine & Spirit MagazineAbout the Author:
Stuart Walton writes on wine for BBC magazines, Wine magazine, and The European. His interest in the subject began when he co-founded a tasting circle at home and went on to pass the Wine & Spirit Education Trust examinations. Having travelled extensively in wine regions, he views developments in the modern wine world with a sharply critical eye and, in order to preserve his independence of judgement, has no commercial interest in the wine trade.
