Mitchell Beazley Tuscany - How to find great wines off the beaten track

Mitchell Beazley The series Discovering Wine Country from Mitchell Beazley has recently seen two new additions: one on northern Spain, including Catalonia, Rioja, Galicia and Navarra, and one on Toscana.

Both books follow the same formula: The author makes a short introduction to each region and its wines, followed by recommendations of wine growers to visit, restaurants, hotels, and sights. The books are ideal companions for travelling, also thanks to the handy and small format. But also perfect to start travelling already on the couch in the living room. There are also some tips and suggestions as to what to do, and what not to do – e.g. wear a shirt and not a T-shirt in Tuscany, don’t try and schedule any visits over lunch time in Spain, always call ahead etc. Quite good maps with suggested itineraries.
