This continent-wide travel and tasting book takes us from Ethiopia to Zimbabwe exploring the wines of Africa which grow in some of the most rugged landscapes and extreme climates anywhere and are among the oldest (Egyption wines) in recorded history.
John and Erica Platter are the bestselling wine journalists of South Africa and their wine ratings and tasting notes are widely respected.
While most of us will not have the opportunity to taste the wines of Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar, Reunion and Mauritius these two peripatetic South African wine writers will share their sniffing, spitting and swallowing experiences with you. A fascinating addition to any wine or travel library.
