A Book a Day

A Book a Day

Here is a book written by an English man, who was very fond of the Loire Valley and wrote extensively about it. The nooks and crannies of the river; fishing holes. The chateaus, of course, but so much more. And he had a wonderful appreciation of the wines of the Loire as well. Although the book is old; I shall be looking up some of the wines he wrote about.
