This established textbook explores how regions present themselves to tourists experiencing the culture, history, and ambience of a location through the food and wine they produce. It provides practical suggestions and guidelines for establishing a food-related tourism destination and discusses the environment, understanding the food tourist, supply issues, marketing, and best practice strategies. It includes numerous case studies from around the world and plentiful pedagogical features to aid student learning.

The second edition:
- Contains updated chapters throughout to form a complete and current overview of food and wine tourism
- Reviews new emerging destinations and food and wine tourism from a business perspective
- Includes new global case studies discussing aspects such an Indian wine, Scottish whisky, and Austrian chocolate tourism.
