"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
