Volcanic vineyards listed as UNESCO World Heritage, a “peace wine” blending over 600 varieties from around the world, vines standing 15 metres tall in Italy and Portugal, ice wines from Quebec, a wine from the Gobi desert, Taiwan’s huge yields, harvesting on 31 December, classical music among the vines, a Bordeaux made with dry ice, a sparkling wine for disgorging at home …

This book features the viticultural techniques of many countries; they are far enough off the radar to delight anyone who loves originality and hates standardisation.

Pierrick Bourgault (winner of the 2013 Grand Prix of the Association Française des Journalistes Agricoles) has spent twenty years travelling the world in a quest to unearth dozens of unusual wines. His guide ranges from conventional practices explained in an informative way to the least-known expertise and techniques.

The book covers eight topics: Climates, Terroirs, Grape varieties, Work in the vineyard, Winemaking, Colour, Ageing, Packaging.
