New Zealand Food Guide
As a long-time user of Lonely Planet travel books, I was surprised and disappointed with this book, and will look to other brands for future travel books. Took this one to NZ, but quickly found it contained limited information relative to older style LP books. Purchased a Rough Guide for NZ and found it far superior in the quantity and quality of information for our travels. The Lonely Planet books historically had gobs of information on each town. This LP book had limited information, detail, and content. Few restaurant and lodging listings, lack of a good overview of each town, and lack of good street maps. This is a good book for "package tour" style travellers in NZ, but not well suited for independent travel. Looking for grocery stores, laundries, sights, lodging or food (i.e., where to stay and eat) at various price points? Lonely Planet previously excelled at this. Not anymore, judging from this LP book.
New Zealand: A Photographer's Guide
"Authors Trevern and Anna Dawes have travelled extensively around New Zealand. Over the years they have compiled a collection of great images and useful tips that will save photographers a huge amount of time to reach the best locations at the right time.
Starting in the North Island, the guide provides a virtual tour around New Zealand, including map links for each location and experienced advice on the photographic gear suitable for New Zealand's wide variety of environment.
Wines of New Zealand (Guide to New Zealand Wine)
A comprehensive guide to New Zealand's best photographic locations, with advice on when and where to go, and featuring more than 150 superb images from around the country.
The wines of New Zealand are unique, bridging the gap between the styles of the New and Old Worlds. While high quality, super-intense versions of sauvignon blanc afforded New Zealand international recognition, the wine landscape has quickly diversified and this guide gives what you need to tap into the country’s other rising stars: world-class pinot noirs, high quality red Bordeaux blends, and some up-and-coming alternative white varieties (gewurztraminer, riesling, and pinot gris).
This Approach Guide begins by offering a straightforward vintage ratings table, which affords high-level insight into the best and most challenging years for wine production in New Zealand. It then describes the country’s primary red and white grape varieties and where they reach their highest expressions.
Finally and most important, this guide provides detailed, region-by-region reviews of each of the country’s 11 wine producing regions:
Auckland (Kumeu, Matakana, and Waiheke Island), Canterbury (Waipara), Central Otago, Gisborne, Hawke’s Bay, the famed
Marlborough, Nelson, Northland, Waikato-Bay of Plenty, Wairarapa (Martinborough), and the Waitaki Valley. For each region, this guide offers insight into its unique terroir, pointing out the best wines and what makes them distinctive.
Rather than seek to tell you what specific bottle of wine to order, this Approach Guide gives an approach to ordering the most appropriate wine for the region and your personal tastes.
Look for the asterisks! * We mark each of our favorite regions, sub-regions, and grape varieties with an asterisk — they have a record for providing quality, consistency, and good values.
