This book has become the standard reference work for those passionate about wine, whether as a genuine oenophile or simply someone who wants to learn a little more, not too mention those who just love beautiful books. The authors are amongst the most knowledgeable and widely respected wine writers in the world and this is their third collaboration. All the main wine-producing areas of the world are covered, while coastal Croatia, South Africa’s Swartland, northern Virginia in the US, and Ningxia in China are covered for the first time as a sign of a rapidly changing world. There are also sections on the history, production and appreciation of wine.
The secret of this book’s success lies in its comprehensiveness, as well as the many fine maps and photographs and the crafted prose. This edition’s a bold new ‘infographic’ illustration style make the visual appeal of the atlas stronger than ever. Mitchell Beazley 400pp Hb. FJH100 £40.00
