Overall, I'd recommend the book if you want to know a bit about Argentina wine regions, just understand its not exhaustive coverage of the topic.
For such a purpose, this book is splendid. it is organized by regions in Argentina covering that large socialy, economically, and for our lusty purposes here, geographically. Within each region, a fine wine estate(s) is selected, and we can read quite delightful stories about the estate's history, owners, their approach to wine-making, technical details (well illustrated) and delectably much about the terroir and the nature of the local wine.
Using the book, we selected wines for our evening and they were splendid.
But there are other purposes than wine selection for reading this Guide to the Wines and Wine Country of Argentina. Many of us delight in surrogate travel, and this is a grand travel book. One could plan a wine-lovers Argentine adventure using the information, or travel as Emily Dickenson wrote on the frigate that is a book, taking us miles away.
I have no criticisms but what a package if Amazon offered the book together with a case of the wines described! Just note this is NOT about bargain wines of Argentina, so if you want cheap but good enough wines (and I often do myself) or are comfortable only relying on Expert X's rating, this is not the book for you.
If you are delighted to branch out, explore, enjoy wine in the company of good writers, this could be just what you'd like. Thus fellow lovers of travel and lovers of wine, buy this with confidence realizing of course any book can be somewhat outdated that speaks of wineries and restaurants-----and let us drink: BIBENDUM!

This is an excellent introduction to Argentine wines and the country where they are grown. It is biased toward the wines made by Catena, but still is a good place to start.Published on August 23, 2013 by jab
