But for the majority of travelers, beachy Cádiz is a more appealing place to stay.

Like virtually all vineyards in Bierzo, Palacios’s vines grow en vaso, or in low, unkempt bushes, making hand-picking a requirement. But for the majority of travelers, beachy Cádiz is a more appealing place to stay. The city’s Parador, a thoroughly modern hotel with designer furnishings and a buzzing pool deck, is a solid bet.

A Traveller's Wine Guide to California. If California were an independent nation it would be the fourth leading wine-producing country in the world after Italy, France and Spain. And nowhere else will you find more visitor-friendly wineries. Sampling these and tasting their wines is a rewarding experience, but, faced with the bewildering variety of wineries on offer, it’s hard to know where to start.

Spain's signature white wine is Albarino, and it is named for a grape that is grown in Galicia. Exclusively bottled as a varietal ( wine produced from a single grape variety ) it is unquestionably ranked as one of the world's finest white wines. The intense mineral content, searing acidity, and light body are similar to that of a light ocean breeze.

  • This book is a disappointment. It is much too lacking in detail - a bit surprising, because it has some excellent predecessors. "The Wine Atlas of Spain and Traveler's Guide to the Vineyards," by Hubrecht Duijker, was published in 1992. It sets a high standard but it was more expensive, so it is unrealistic to think that the new work would match it in every way. Unfortunately it fails to match it in any way. It is perhaps more fair to compare it to "The Wines of Spain and Portugal," a British 1988 publication by Metcalfe and McWhirter, which would be roughly the same price today. Unfortunately the new one delivers about half the information of the earlier work. Its eight pages on Aragon are so skimpy one wonders why it was included at all. It discusses only the Somontano region. It makes a one-line reference to Campo de Borja and no mention of Calatayud or Carinena. This is despite several wine sellers telling me that "Calatayud reds are the new inexpensive favorite for group functions." (I confess I have found several Calatayud reds that I really like.) The Introduction of the book is also thin, and the text is corrupted. Between page xvi and xx the pages are scrambled, or perhaps just some of the information on the pages. Topics and/or sentences which should be continued on the next page are not. I'm not familiar with Interlink Press, but surely they can do better than this, and surely they should have caught it before they shipped. (I do not know if these errors occurred on all copies, but there must be at least a batch.)

  • What a disappointment - I think this book tried to cover too large an area and it would have been more useful if several guides were produced for a number of regions, more details about getting to some of the bodegas and importantly which bodegas have English speaking staff to receive their guests. First a couple of good points - good paper quality, good photo reproduction and good binding. After these there are not a lot of good points.

    A travellers guide just has to have good maps - the maps in this guide have no scale, maps appear to be of different scale so that the area fits to one page - so you dont have a clue about distances. The Rioja map has no key explaining the color coding. All maps have a compass with west opposite north and south opposite east - incorrect compass directions also occur in the text; towns / roads / highways and bodegas mentioned in the text are not shown or at least not labelled on the maps. There is a major disconnect between the maps, text and photos eg a photo of Montilla is in the Jerez section and vice versa, also incorrect photo captions eg Osborne cellars said to be in Jerez when actually in El Puerto; the area of Bierzo is shown on the map in the Castille section of the guide, but the text for this area is in the northwest Spain section of the guide (the map of which does not show the Bierzo area).

    A previous reviewer described the scrambled text in the introduction - also occurred in my copy. There are numerous other minor issues, but the overwhelming impression is that this book is not a practical guide - sure it refers the reader to other web sites for more information, but I want to see this information in a practical wine guide book.

  • My wife and I just came back from Spain. We traveled the country with this wine guide in hand. We found the information very reliable and appreciated the valuable advice it gave. Compared to other wine titles we considered purchasing, we liked its small, compact, travel-friendly size, which allowed us to carry it with us everywhere. The maps were helpful at the planning stage, but while in Spain we used a more extensive road map as well as a GPS. All in all, we are happy with this up-to-date guidebook and recommend it to any wine enthusiast planning a trip to Spain.
