It often takes several phone calls in a foreign language to find wineries or remote restaurants that are not well signposted. Using the GPS codes programmed into a Sat Nav, self-drive wine tours in Europe will become much easier.
London, UK (PRWEB) September 18, 2008
Wine lovers touring the wine regions of France with the help of the on-line guides from Wine Travel Guides can now use their in-car satellite navigational systems to find recommended wine producers much more easily. GPS co-ordinates have been added to the contact details for all the wine producers, places to stay and restaurants recommended in the guides.
In much of continental Europe including France, a postcode can cover a huge area, and wineries, hotels and restaurants in the middle of the countryside, rarely have a street address. Owner of Wine Travel Guides, Wink Lorch commented: "It often takes several phone calls in a foreign language to find wineries or remote restaurants that are not well signposted. Using the GPS codes programmed into a Sat Nav, self-drive wine tours in Europe will become much easier."
The 46 on-line travel guides to the wine regions of France each have recommendations of interesting wine producers to visit and a range of places to stay, eat and shop, all selected by independent wine and travel writers. Guides are updated at least once a year. Later in 2008, on-line guides to Rioja in Spain, Tuscany in Italy and the Mosel wine region of Germany will come on stream, making Wine Travel Guides truly European.
The website was established by UK wine writer Wink Lorch in 2007 especially for wine lovers and independent travelers who prefer to plan their own tours. A subscription site with no advertising, each travel guide provides a wealth of information for the visitor, from basic wine region facts to fascinating tourist attractions. A sample wine region guide is available by registering on the site.
Subscribers to Wine Travel Guides will now find the GPS codes listed for each selected wine producer, hotel or restaurant below their full address, telephone, email and website, easily downloaded as a PDF file. With this practical information to hand, it will give more planning time to enjoy the evocative descriptions of each place described by our team of writers.
Wine Travel Guides really does provide all a wine lover needs for a great wine tour. As one Gold subscriber comments: "My wife and I plan our vacations around wine, food and outdoor activities. Yours is the first 'guide' that addresses our interests in a useful and thorough way."
Further information can be found by visiting Wine Travel Guides on-line or by contacting owner Wink Lorch directly.
