Their insightful profiles include not only the well-known producers, but also the up-and-comers of each country.

Featuring more than just a simple listing of key countries, regions and producers, this magnum opus unearths the entire winemaking industry of the Southern Hemisphere, giving readers a historical, geographical and enological overview.

Each overview includes thorough research from the “World Wine Guys’” travels and features graphics of wine labels in each region, “In Their Own Words” Q&A’s from producers and highlighted local cuisine with 18 recipes to help readers place the wines into a food-friendly context.

The organization of the book is well thought out and readers can travel through the Southern Hemisphere by choosing their destination in the table of contents.
