"One of the pleasures of wine touring," writes Christopher Fielden, "is the limitless interest of the subject. Each year the wine is different, each season the scenery changes. Round every corner there is a new grower or merchant waiting to be visited. There can bc few more satisfying ways of passing time in France than talking to a grower about his or her wine, with a glass of it in your band." The home of many of the world's greatest wines, nowhere else will you find such a warm welcome awaiting you in the cellar. A Traveller's Wine Guide to France provides a fascinating introduction to the wine regions and their vineyards. There are clear guidelines for visiting wineries and tasting their wines. Is there a charge for tasting? Are you expected to spit? (Yes in Burgundy; no in Alsace.) This book supplies answers to these and many other questions.
