"The road is long..." but here it is finally: my extensive book on the Roussillon wine region in deepest south of France, or far western French Mediterranean to be more precise. Available to buy on Amazon as a paperback (colour or black & white versions) and ebook (all from Kindle Direct Publishing). Follow the links below to your 'marketplace' to read the info blurb, get swept away and purchase a copy! (colour paperback and ebook) or (black & white) or or or or or

Paperback and ebook also available on Amazon Italy (or black & white) and Spain (or b&w). As well as those countries, the ebook can be purchased here too:

Featuring in-depth profiles of 175 wineries from north to south from Maury to Banyuls via Perpignan and just about everywhere else in between. As well as some background to and history of the Roussillon wine region including its vines and grapes and landscape and terrain, explanation and discussion of all the different wine styles, areas and appellations (red, white, rosé Côtes du Roussillon, Côtes du Roussillon Villages, Côtes Catalanes, Maury sec, Collioure, Vin de France.... and fortified Vin Doux Naturel wines: Maury, Rivesaltes and Banyuls) including winemaking techniques and other exciting developments in viticulture and winemaking. Plus wine touring and sightseeing tips peppered with the odd restaurant and hotel recommendation for those looking to explore the eminently explorable Roussillon region.

Generic info can be found on the Roussillon wine producers' new website (that's a damn cool web address by the way).
