This week for Mailbox Monday, I have a couple of armchair travel books, courtesy of Exploring Wine Regions.I was more than happy to look over these review copies of Exploring Wine Regions – Bordeaux France, which comes out on October 1, and the earlier book on Argentina. Both promise insider accounts of wineries and vineyards in the regions they cover as well as travel guides to the food, special lodging, sights, and history.
The Argentina and Bordeaux books are the first two in what promises to be a long series. A California book will come next.
The photographs are gorgeous and both books are chock-o-block with information. I look forward to spending time with them before I post a review. I can already see they are beautiful coffee table books and would be perfect for planning a wine tasting vacation.
FROM THE PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION:
Our series of coffee table quality books are filled with spectacular photography, wine knowledge and travel tips. It’s all about wine. Everything wine. And what that lifestyle is about. The foods. The travels. The people. The experiences.
As we travel to the different wine regions, we immerse ourselves, deeply educate ourselves to better able to share our knowledge and personal experiences with you in the most concise way. Where to go…the wineries, restaurants, accommodations, events, and experiences. And a little history of each region to better understand the wines. Through us, meet the winemakers, chefs, sommeliers, hoteliers, restauranteurs, even the proprietors… the people who are at the forefront of the winemaking and the wine tourism industry.
