Top 10 books about wine, beer, and spirits to read in lockdown

Gold in the Vineyards, Laura Catena

This is one for the oenophiles yearning for a holiday right now.

Managing director of Argentina’s Catena Zapata, Laura Catena, has released a new illustrated book featuring what she believes are the 12 most celebrated vineyards in the world.

Catena said she had been “surprised” by the popularity of the Spanish version of the book in Argentina, and decided to translate it into English.

The book profiles 12 different vineyards, located in both the New and Old World, charting their history and explaining why they have become so well-known. It also comes with detailed maps, infographics and charming illustrations throughout. Perfect for a stealing a moment in the garden, on the balcony, or leaning out of the window of your London flat with with a glass of good claret and pretending you’re somewhere else.

Gold in the vineyards is available from Amazon, and Blackwells.
