I have just returned from a 5-day holiday in Bordeaux - the guides are excellent and a great addition to the pleasures of the visit.

The most successful trips are always the best planned, and help is now at hand for wine lovers in the form of updated on-line travel guides. Designed for anyone planning their own private tour of the wine regions of France, the Wine Travel Guides website offers 45 on-line guides, each written by a wine and travel specialist with the inside knowledge of their area.
The core of these comprehensive, insider guides is a careful selection of recommended wine producers to visit and local places to stay, eat and shop. Each guide also includes an aide-memoire to the wines of the area and features an ideal one or two day itinerary, allowing visitors to plan their days in detail.
The main wine regions of France have been broken down into smaller sections, enabling a real focus on the most attractive towns, villages and tourist sights in the area. Connoisseur wine lovers will appreciate the hand-picked selection of wine producers who will provide a great welcome and tour of their cellars along with an interesting wine tasting. Newcomers to wine will enjoy the careful mix of wine and tourist attractions.

With bright clear presentation and no advertising or sponsorship on the website, the guides are available by annual subscription. Bronze and Silver subscriptions give access to one or three PDF guides, and the Gold subscription provides unlimited access to the guides both as PDF files, and directly on-line, with interactive links to detailed Michelin maps.
The subscriptions may be purchased as gifts, and visitors can register for a free sample guide enabling them to try before they buy.
A Gold subscriber to Wine Travel Guides has access to all the information needed for planning a few days stay in French wine country, with full contact details, links, maps and important background information all in one place. As one wine aficionado commented: "Your guides are a great idea, especially for people touring … no need to buy/pack all those books!"
Further information can be found by visiting Wine Travel Guides on-line. To discuss any aspect of the guides or the development of the website, contact owner Wink Lorch, who is a wine writer herself, and writes the guides to the Jura wine region.
