Item description for Dominic's France: The Cool Climate by Dominic Rippon...
For too long, the hidden gems of French wine and food have remained hidden while the more familiar big brands hold sway. Now young wine authority Dominic Rippon sets out to reveal all that is finest about real French producers, starting with the four northernmost wine regions of France, the 'cool climate' regions of Loire, Alsace, Burgundy and Champagne. Dominic's France will give readers personal recommendations to the best wine producers, as well as local restaurants which serve their wines with the finest local food. There are detailed travel itineraries and maps for each region, tips for the independent traveler and a nose-to-the-ground insight into hundreds of food and wine establishments. Many of them have agreed to offer readers exclusive discounts on showing of the book. To ensure both authenticity and accuracy, Dominic cycled over 4,000 miles through each of the regions in one non-stop journey from early May to mid November 2006, visiting vineyards, restaurants and wine producers throughout the country. No other book will contain such a comprehensive survey of the finest French producers, and no other book will provide such a personal introduction to them, offering reader discounts, tasting notes, and recommended food and wine combinations. Dominic's journey reveals the true heart of France. Subsequent books in the series will look at Bordeaux, Languedoc and the hidden regions of French wine
