Following from the best-selling book, Wines of France, Benjamin Lewin MW has prepared a series of eGuides to the wine-producing regions of France. Each guide is divided into two parts.

The first part describes the region and the types of wines it produces, how they reflect the area and the grape varieties that are grown, what is traditional and what is modern, and how styles are evolving. Reference wines are suggested to typify each area. Recent vintages are described, and summarized in vintage charts.

The second part has detailed profiles of the leading producers, ranging from those who may dominate an appellation to those who define the cutting edge. The profiles identify the best of tradition and innovation in the region. Each profile describes the producer's aims for his wines, and the personality and philosophy behind them. References wines are suggested for each producer. Each section of producers starts with a map to show their locations to help plan itineraries.

This eGuide is the indispensable means for understanding the Northern and Southern Rhône, tastings their wines, and identifying the producers.
