TRAVELLER'S WINE GUIDE TO SPAIN


TRAVELLER'S WINE GUIDE TO SPAIN

HAROLD HECKLE    Book Number: 86516    Product format: Paperback

In the quality Armchair Traveller guidebook series from the Haus publisher this is a quality thumb-indexed guide, bursting with colour photos and maps. Spain has more land under vine than any other country in Europe and over the past 30 years has transformed the wine industry into one of the greatest in the world. Using a combination of native and imported grape varieties, Spain now produces quality wines yet its regions and villages, many of which are located in unspoilt and remote areas, remain relatively unknown. The wine-loving traveller is invited to these regions with a book giving the background to the wines and leading bodegas or wineries, and giving ample recommendations on where to stay and eat in and around each region. The first authorised classifications date from 1932 when the following DOs were created - Jerez-Xères-Sherry; Manzanilla; Málaga; Montilla-Moriles; Rioja; Tarragona; Priorato; Alella; Utiel Requena; Valencia; Alicante; Ribeiro; Cariñena; Penedés; Condado de Huelva; Valdepeñas; La Mancha; Navarra and Rueda. There are also over 40 table wine classifications. Traditionally the best welcomes available to wine lovers are in the Sherry Triangle (see pages 127-146). Fantastic historical background and all about festivals and with addresses and websites and glorious photos for example of freshly picked Cep mushrooms in Barcelona. Specially commissioned maps, museums and sightseeing points, itineraries and reference section. 196 tall pages in softback, colour.
