"Vinos, Piscos y Gastronomía del Perú" gives an important space, as part of gastronomy, to Peruvian wine and pisco, two drinks, daughters of grapes, with a four-hundred-year-old tradition that, in most cases, are made by the same producers.
Both Lucero Villagarcía and Pedro Cuenca have a wine-growing career spanning many years and are recognized as great disseminators and enthusiasts of these elixirs. That is why they came together to share information about the history, characteristics, grapes and the correct way to appreciate (taste) each one. In addition, there is a chapter on pairing, so that readers can make a good choice of accompaniments for wines and piscos.
Lucero and Pedro also take a multi-page tour of the wine regions where pisco has been made for more than 400 years: Lima, Ica, Arequipa, Moquegua and Tacna. And, in the case of wine, the same regions, including Apurímac, where wine production began very recently, but with great success.
This valuable information is accompanied by a review of excellent wines and piscos, suggested by both authors, who have designed the list taking into account quality and consistency over the years.
Of course, they have considered the work and dedication of each of the producers, whom they know very closely and value greatly. So it is a way to give them well-deserved recognition and encourage beverage lovers to buy and consume Peruvian wines and the national spirit.
