Wine Map Updates

We reprinted three of our most popular maps in the last few months: Italy in August; Spain & Portugal and France in December.

Amazingly, only France had any updates, and they were minor:

1. Bourgogne Vézelay, a subregion of Bourgogne becomes a full AOP.

3. Corrèze is a new AOP in SW France, west of Bordeaux and north of Cahors.
