The Mad Keen Wine Buff's Road Trip - Phil's guide to New Zealand wine regions

OK - time for shameless self-promotion.

I wrote this guide to NZ's wine regions, and it was published by Random House.  For a description of the book click here.

This book is the mad keen wine buff's indispensable guide to this country's host of fantastic wineries.

JUST $19.90 a signed copy.  Just in time for Father's Day.

“A practical handbook which lives up to its title.”
Terry Dunleavey – Editor of NZ WineGrower Magazine. (Former president of NZ Wine Institute)

Hankering for Hawkes Bay?
Keen as for Kumeu?
Wild for Wairarapa and Waiheke?
Mad about Matakana and Martinborough?

Another in Random House's successful ‘Mad Keen...Road Trip' series, wine tour expert Phil Parker has designed a series of 40 weekends among the vines in New Zealand's magnificent wine regions, with The Mad Keen Wine Buff's Road Trip. Wine buffs and even those with not much knowledge at all about wine but who like to drink it, can sniff, sip and slurp to the hearts' content. With well-considered itineraries for visits within regions and sub-regions, maps, recommendations for where to stay, where to eat, what to do when you're not wine-tasting and hilarious illustrations by ace cartoonist Chris Slane.
