Some wine recommendations taken from The Book of Wine by Joanna Simon


Burgundy, including Chablis

Sauvignon Blanc

Two focal points: the Loire, especially Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume; and Marlborough, New Zealand. Also significant in Bordeaux and Bergerac; Rueda in Spain, Styria in Austria; Chile, especially Casablanca; South Africa; and California.


Throughout Germany, but especially Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Nahe, Rehingau, Rehinhessen, and Pfalz; Alsace; Austria, especially Wachau; and Australia, especially the Clare and Eden valleys.

Carbernet Sauvignon

Bordeaux; Australia, California, Chile, Argentina, South Africa, New Zealand, France’s Vin de Pays d’Oc region, Washington State, Tuscany.

Pinot Noir

Burgundy, but keep an eye on California, Oregon, New Zealand and Australia


Rhone, especially the northern stretch, all over Australia, but especially the Barossa Valley; southern France, especially Languedoc; and almost anywhere else whee it is warm enough.
