Hi...I have visit on

Hi...I have visit on it's really sound...Cool!! I will check it out!

wine as a textbook

One of the things I enjoy about wine is its intellectual component. (Ok, there are several other things I enjoy too...) Throughout western history wine has accompanied all great moments in art, philosophy, and thought. In places like France and Italy, wine is a reflection of the local character—not just the actual terra firma, but the feeling and atmosphere and history of the place.


These look like a great companion to viticultural adventure.

Only Europe so far

Lisa - at present we are only covering wine regions in Europe, but we hope one day to cover the whole world. It's a long (and costly!) process to do them right! Thanks for taking a look.

Wine & Travel

It's funny.  When I travel, I always enjoy wine.  But I have not planned a trip around wine.  Being a wine lover, it seems like a natural thing to do.

Bringing wine to life

Jesse - it's true that visiting a wine region brings the wine to life and gives you a much greater understanding and appreciation of what you are drinking. It's a wonderful activity to do on your travels.
