Take the Subway to Sancerre


Created by David Gissen, an architectural historian and wine afficianado, the Metro Wine Map of France reconceptualizes France's wine regions as a subway map.

"If I see another picture of a vineyard or pruning shears, or a wine map that looks like a hiking map, I might lose it," Gissen told wine blogger Dr. Vino about his inspiration for creating the innovative map. "I believe that French wine (like all EU wine) was born in and through villages, towns and cities. From my perspective it’s completely urban. I want to make some artifacts that express my point of view. The map is the first of these."

The map is 18 x 24 inches and printed on heavyweight acid-free matte paper. $24.95 at De Long Wine Discovery Tools.

I just heard about a book signing for Katie Lee Joel's (Billy Joel's wife) new awesome cookbook "The Comfort Table" at the new Yigal Azrouel boutique on 700 Montauk Highway in Watermill (Hamptons) from 1PM to 3PM.

It's gonna be a lot of fun with FREE COCKTAILS! I can't wait.


Very interesting and informative blog. Hope we get some updates
