Book review: Chile: Country Of Mountains And Wines

Chile: Country Of Mountains And Wines
Chili, Pays de vins et de montagnes
Chile : País de montañas y vinos

By: Papianille Mura (text), and Matt Wilson (photo)
Versant Sud is a beautiful and inspiring book. It tells the story of the birth of the Chilean wine industry. It talks about the history, about the winemaking, the nature (and of course a bit about the mountains), and about many of the wineries. The photography is excellent with enchanting landscapes, moody cellars, and much more. The pictures certainly make you want to go there. From a wine enthusiast stand-point, the texts are quite light-weight (with also some odd statements about winemaking). You should not expect to learn much in depth about Chilean wines, neither does it give much detail for the prospective tourist. Instead you can read it to get inspired and perhaps get a feeling about the country. The author lived for several years in Chile but is of French origin and wrote the book as a way to make Chilean wines and wineries better known. It is published in three languages.
