Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is one of the most interesting books about geography I have read. The story of wine serves to draw the reader into the text and even deeper into the understanding of the influences that geography can play on wine production. ... The Geography of Wine: Regions, Terroir and Techniques is well researched and includes much detail about wine and geography. If you know little or a lot about wine, this book will be interesting and well worth the read ... ." (Jeff Thurston, 3D Visualization World Magazine, 3dvisworld.com, October, 2012)
