This beautifully illustrated book offers unrivalled access to the magnificent private homes in France's age-old wine industry. Photographs from thirty-one wine estates range from sumptuous Champagne houses to modest Burgundian chateaux. Florence Brutton's texts bring the unique character of each estate to life: she explains the importance of local customs and the history of each family as wine makers. Travellers will love the practical details, including lists of the wines produced by each estate, a map and, where applicable, visitor information, including details about wine-tasting sessions, tours, accommodation and dining.
