Wine is a product of the land, made by dedicated producers in intriguing places all over the world. This stylish new book invites the reader to explore those regions and thus understand how a particular wine evolves from where and when it is created.

Fairs and festivals where the wine lover can celebrate in style are also featured, and each chapter concludes with a fascinating profile of a key wine producer, from Stéphane Tsassis of Champagne Laurent-Perrier to Peter Gago, Chief Winemaker of Penfolds, Australia.
