EXTREMELY PALE ROSE, by Jamie Ivey
The trip, in their friend's middle-aged convertible, zigzags through Champagne and the Loire, legendary areas near Bordeaux and Beaune, and into the deep south. Along the way, they have encounters with winemakers of every stripe, crash a wedding reception, eat prodigiously well, and visit some small wine towns you might like to find. An excellent resource for the dedicated winey and the curious traveler. It's a 4.
