Biographie de l'auteur :

Writers John and Erica Platter have headed the South African best-seller lists for more than 20 years with their phenomenally successful wine guide. Known simply as 'Platter', this pocket companion is rated by Decanter as 'one of the best wine guides in the world' and was winner of the 2001 Lanson Wine Guide of the Year award. The Platters' combination of wine knowledge and African travel experience is unique. They know their continent and its vineyards from the ground up and have written extensively on both. John has contributed to, amongst others, Jancis Robinson's Oxford Companion to Wine and Mitchell Beazley's New World of Wine. He judges at and presents international tastings - the John Platter Wine Dinner in Hong Kong has become a popular annual event. Erica is the author of a humorous crime novel set in the Cape vineyards - A Strange Case of Wine (1993).

Revue de presse :

A vinous voyage across the length and breadth of Africa, a continent more renowned for its famine, drought and deserts. This book reveals that the desire by man to grow vines and produce wine is far greater than environmental constraints. Wine writer John Platter and his wife Erica travel around this vast continent, exploring countries as diverse as Egypt and Ethiopia, Morocco and Mauritius, Algeria and East Africa, tasting their way through an eclectic array of viteous offerings. Engagingly written and hilarious in places, the Platters describe their safari in detail, drawing in the reader and making them feel a part of their great adventure. A must for all wine lovers and travel enthusiasts. --Lucy Watson

Description du livre (Cape Town: Double Storey, 2002) 1919930078, 2002. Small 4to; original brown glacé boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper, housed in removable protector; pp. 288, incl. index; liberally illustrated with full-colour photographs. Fine condition. "Africa Uncorked is a wonderful collection of colourful stories and adventures chronicling John and Erica Platter's travels along some very unusual wine routes. Sniffing, spitting and swallowing their way through Africa, using vineyards as their beacons, they've bypassed the usual clichés and carved out a new trans-continental road. Their safari took them off the beaten track to 13 very different wine-growing countries: from Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia on the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean islands of Magagascar, Mauritius and Reunion; back onto the East African mainland to Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania; through Zimbabwe and South Africa; and west to Namibia. They made astonishing wine discoveries, sampled amazing food, met extraordinary characters, visited fabulous historical sites, ventured into areas which have been no-go zones for foreigners for decades. . Altogether, this has to be the most original wine publication in years.". N° de réf. du libraire 9199
