“The Dirty Guide to Wine organizes wines not by grape, not by region, not by New or Orld World, but by bedrock.”

This is the book for true believers in the concept of terroir – it begins with wines with origins in igneous rock (basalt: the Willamette Valley in Oregon, and granite: the Northern Rhone); sedimentary rock (limestone: Burgundy and gravel: Bordeaux); and metamorphic rock (slate and schist: Languedoc-Roussillon). It includes tasting guides and cheat sheets for each type of rock family, as well as winemaker profiles and suggested wines from each region.

Softcover, 235+ pages.
