Award-winning wine writer Peter Richards has traveled and researched extensively to uncover the intriguing story of iconic wineries around the world and how they came to be as they are. He takes readers on a visual tour of 80 of the world’s most striking, fascinating, and impressive wineries, from seventeen wine countries and regions. In addition to discussing both wine and architecture, he includes producer fact boxes with contact details, wine tips, and visitor information, plus a world map that makes locating the wineries easy. With more than 200 inspiring color photographs, this is an illuminating book for wine lovers, armchair tourists, and travelers.
