Wine Regions of New Zealand – A Visitor’s Guide by Phil Parker
Just released on http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00X97LZSM
An informative and entertaining guide to New Zealand’s wine history, grape varieties, soil types, and grape growing regions. Includes detailed information on cellar doors, vineyard restaurants and regional activities.
This book is designed to be a handy guide for anyone keen to know more about the grape varieties grown in New Zealand, and to explore the flavour and colour of our unique heartland regional winery cellar doors.
Each of the regions from north to south has its own distinctive scenery, from snow-capped mountains, to rolling green countryside, to breath-taking golden beaches. Any time of year is a good time to visit, a sunny summer outdoor tasting overlooking neat rows of lush green vines, or sampling in a cosy winter cellar door with a blazing log fire.
In order to enable the wine fan to get the most out of each region, the book has divided New Zealand into separate regions and sub-regions. Detailed, up-to-date information is provided on wineries, wine styles, hours of operation, vineyard café or restaurant, and pricing. Also included are suggestions on vineyard accommodation, attractions, artisan foods, and local history.
“I have designed it to be an informative and entertaining guide to New Zealand’s wine history, grape varieties, soil types, grape growing regions, local activities and winery dogs!” says Phil.
It is the most comprehensive and up-to-date NZ regional winery guide available. As a mobile-device-friendly publication it is aimed to help the interactive traveler to explore our fantastic wine regions.
