Wine has been described as a window into places, cultures and times. Geographers have studied wine since the time of the early Greeks and Romans, when viticulturalists realized that the same grape grown in different geographic regions produced wine with differing olfactory and taste characteristics. This book, based on research presented to the Wine Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers, shows just how far the relationship has come since the time of Bacchus and Dionysus. Geographers have technical input into the wine industry, with exciting new research tackling subjects such as the impact of climate change on grape production, to the use of remote sensing and Geographical Information Systems for improving the quality of crops. This book explores the interdisciplinary connections ?and science behind world viticulture. Chapters cover a wide range of topics from the way in which landforms and soil affect wine production, to the climatic aberration of the Niagara wine industry, to the social and structural challenges in reshaping the South African wine industry after the fall of apartheid. The fundamentals are detailed too, with a comparative analysis of Bordeaux and Burgundy, and chapters on the geography of wine and the meaning of the term 'terroir'.

Kritikerstimmen

From the reviews:"This is one of the most interesting books about geography I have read. The story of wine serves to draw the reader into the text and even deeper into the understanding of the influences that geography can play on wine production. ... The Geography of Wine: Regions, Terroir and Techniques is well researched and includes much detail about wine and geography. If you know little or a lot about wine, this book will be interesting and well worth the read ... ." (Jeff Thurston, 3D Visualization World Magazine, 3dvisworld.com, October, 2012)
