Known traditionally for its dramatic landscapes, the South of France is becoming one of the most vibrant and exciting of French vineyard areas. Every key wine area is covered from Banyuls on the Spanish border to the island of Corsica. The key wine producers and their wines are featured, with details of the regions, laws and grape varieties. The author reveals the fascinating developments in the vineyards and the cellars throughout this region's many wine-producing locations and how new appellations are more regularly rewarded here than in any other wine region in France.
