A Traveller's Wine Guide to Spain
Harold Heckle; with original text by Desmond Begg

published 2012 • 5" x 9" • 196 pages • full-color photos • maps
ISBN 9781566568418 • paperback • $22.00

“This book… might have been titled ‘A Wine Lover’s Travel Guide to Spain.’ It contains interesting background material on all of Spain’s significant wine-producing regions, as well as practical advice on traveling, lodging, dining, and sightseeing.”
—Harvey Finkel, New England Wine Gazette


Spain has more land under vine than any other country in Europe, and over the past thirty years has transformed its wine industry into one of the greatest in the world. Using a unique combination of native and imported grape varieties, Spain now produces a wide range of quality wines. Yet its wine regions and villages, many of which are located in unspoiled and remote areas, remain relatively unknown. The authors introduce the wine-loving traveler to these regions providing a background to their wines and leading bodegas, or wineries.

Harold Heckle is a journalist and author. He works as a correspondent with an international press agency and contributes a wine column to the Spanish daily newspaper El Mundo. A long-term admirer of Spanish culture and an inveterate traveler, he is based in Madrid and has visited virtually all Spain's wine regions, on the mainland and in the Balearics and Canary Islands.

Desmond Begg was a leading expert on the wines and spirits of Spain and Latin America. He studied Spanish and Modern History at the Universities of Oxford and Granada and contributed to numerous international wine magazines.
