"Walking in Wine Country" is a book for those who like to walk, a book for those who like wine, and perhaps above all, a book for those who like France. Good wine is good wine, but an understanding of its origins - the place it comes from, the people that live there, the climate and the soil - can enhance its enjoyment immeasurably. Nigel Buxton visits 20 different wine regions and shares his experience of a walk in each of them, bringing the countryside to life and generating a desire to set out immediately to find the wines he mentions and retrace his steps. Illustrated with 160 specially commissioned colour photographs together with 20 maps in full colour, detailed map references, and much practical information of local interest including useful addresses and telephone numbers.
