The Intelligent Guides to Wines and Top Vineyards focus on classic wine-producing regions. This guide discusses the wines of the Northern Rhône, including Cote Rôtie, Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, St. Joseph, and Cornas. 

The guide is divided into two parts. The first part of the guide discusses the regions, and explains the character and range of the wines. The second part profiles the producers. Detailed profiles of the leading producers show how each winemaker interprets the local character, and there are mini-profiles of other important estates.
Description of each area includes its geography, the grape varieties that are grown, how these relate to the styles of wines that are produced, wines from entry level to icons, currents trends and how styles are evolving. Reference wines are recommended for each region. The guide is illustrated with photographs of each area, topological maps to show the terrain, road maps to identify the locations of estates, and information on recent vintages. 
Profiles range from producers who may dominate an appellation to small estates that define the cutting edge. The profiles identify the best of tradition and innovation in the region. Each estate profile describes the producer’s aims for his wines, and the personality and philosophy behind them. Reference wines are suggested for each producer, together with essential information for planning a visit, including address and map location, phone and email contact details, and whether appointments are needed. 
This Guide is the indispensable means for understanding the Northern Rhône, tasting its wines, and finding the top producers. It is updated regularly to have the latest information.


If you want to understand one of the wine regions in the series or contemplate a serious wine tourist expedition, Lewin’s guides are the place to start your research… The choice of e-book and print-on-demand paperback formats allows Lewin to keep the books up to date.    Lewin’s guides, like his other works, are clear, detailed, and analytical. Lewin constantly asks questions and drives to answer them.  He doesn’t hesitate to share his opinions, but always backs up his arguments. The result, for me at least, is a deeper understanding of the region and its changing place in the wine world.  Mike Veseth, Wine Economist
