Buy the Southern Europe collection
Some of the world’s oldest wine-producing areas are in southern Europe; this collection brings together three of today’s most exciting. Wine has been produced in Greece for thousands of years, and the ancient Greeks even had a god for wine. After years in turmoil Greek wine is now finding its way back onto wine lists world wide – in The wines of Greece, Konstantinos Lazarakis MW explains why. In Amarone and the fine wines of Verona, Michael Garner looks at the versatile wines of the northern Italian regions of Soave and Valpolicella. Deliciously drinkable yet relatively affordable they are a wine explorer’s dream. The third book in the collection, Wines of the Languedoc, sees Rosemary George MW take an in-depth look at one of the first parts of France to grow grapes for wine, tasting with and talking to the producers who are currently reviving its status as one of the world’s great wine regions.
