A beautiful cartographic history of the world of wine, from 6000 BC until today, with detailed maps and incredible facts about wine making, growing and drinking across the globe.
Welcome to your tour of the wine-growing world.
Wine has rolled its barrel from the shores of the Black Sea to the mountains of the Andes, following humans and their dreams. But just how did a Pyrenean grape variety end up in Uruguay? And by what means were grapevines able to reach Japan?
This book goes back through time to retrace the grape’s conquest of the world, stopping in each winemaking country, from the oldest to the most recent, to discover wines past and present, while also looking to the future.
