About the Author
Andrea Domine, in spite of his French name, was born in Hamburg and started as early as 14 to write for newspapers and revues. The great change in his life came when he moved to a winegrowers village in the prehills of the Eastern Pyrenees in 1981, simply looking for sunshine. Already a confirmed wine drinker, he learned working a vineyard and making wine at the tiny cooperative of his village.
He became the first German journalist writing on the - at that time - unknown estates of the South of France and had the chance to be part of a complete revolution in wine quality. His first book on wine was dedicated to the Roussillon region where he lives and came out in 1986. Since then, he has published 12 other books and contributed to a great number of German magazines like essen & trinken, Der Feinschmecker, Wein Gourmet, Alles Ã¼ber Wein, Weinwirtschaft,Weinwelt, VINUM, SÃ¼dafrika Magazin and others.
In 2001, he recieved the first ever German edition of the famous Champagne Lanson Prize as Best Wine Journalist in Germany. In the same year his encyclopÃ©dia WINE with photos from Armin Faber got the Prix Edmond de Rothschild as best winebook in France, and the American version recieved the James Beard Gold Award as best winebook in the States in the following spring. In 2005, he published again with Armin Faber the photo book Wine Landscapes of the World which was elected "Best Wine Book of the World" by Gourmand Cook Book Awards in spring 2006.
