Profiling hundreds of wines from every region, major vineyard, and appellation of France, French Wines is equally useful to the cultured connoisseur as well as the beginner who doesn't know Pouilly Fume from Pouilly Fuisse.

Special features include a glossary of wine terminology; an extensive introductory section with information on viticulture, buying, tasting, storing, serving, and matching foods with wines. A tour itinerary and food specialty for each wine-producing region makes this a perfect accessory on a trip to France or to preparing a meal that makes you feel like you're there.
