Available to download in PDF format the guides cover all the wine regions of France - from Alsace and Champagne down to the Savoie and the South West. Each region is further divided into micro-regions with each 10-18 page guide covering one micro-region, which might be a wine district such as: Saint Emilion (Bordeaux) or Côte de Beaune (Burgundy); a loose geographic area like The Valleys of the Tarn and Lot (South West) or Inland Provence; or centred on important towns such as Epernay (Champagne) or Narbonne (Languedoc Roussillon).
Currently Bordeaux has 8 guides, the Rhone 5, Champagne 3, Alsace 3 and Provence 4.
Each guide claims to offer the "real inside knowledge with the contributor’s personal recommendations" many detailed on interactive Michelin maps.There are also ‘Ideal Itineraries’ for one or two-day visits.
Specifics covered include
- Wine producers to visit.
- Places to Stay: Hotels and, in some Guides, a few chambres d’hôtes (bed and breakfasts).
- Places to Eat: Restaurants and, in some Guides, cafés and wine bars.
- Wine shops (mapped)
- Wine related attractions (mapped)
- Local events
Subscriptions are available at three levels. Gold (£49, €71.92, $98.10) gives full access to all guides for 12 months. Silver (£19.50, €28.62, $39.04) enables the download of 3 guides while Bronze (£7.50, €11.07, $15.02) allows the download of one specific guide.
The plan is for other counties and micro-regions to be added over time.
