WHERE TO DRINK WINE
Most of my vineyard visiting to date has been sweeping through Champagne on the way to the slopes, picking up something jolly to keep the knees lubricated. Good wine has been discovered on these early morning forays, rheumyeyed from a 4.15am Eurostar. But this book might change all that. In fact, it offers a whole new reason to visit any part of the world, as Chris Losh tracks down and offers advice on wineries worth making a detour for.
Losh’s book is divided into sections covering countries and then divided again into regions. He advises on where to head to for exceptional German Mosel, what not to miss in Eastern Europe and Asia, and where to visit in the UK, too. Text is to the point and informative, as a guide should be, filled with knowledge and tantalising description.
Where to drink wine is a blueprint for vinous adventure, marrying classic destinations with hidden gems, the best château and the most interesting cellars. A classic of its type – and a useful present.
