Simply superb work.buy it if you like wine at all.Victoria Moore,The Telegraph
If I owned only one wine book,it would be this one. And this edition,please.Andrew Jefford,Decanter
Few wine books can be called classic but the first edition of The World Atlas of Wine made publishing history when it appeared in 1971. It is recognized by critics as the most essential and authoritative wine reference work available. This seventh edition will bring readers, both old and new, bang up to date with the world of wine.Much has changed since the last edition of the Atlas in 2007. Changes in climate, in winemaking technique, in fashion, and in where wine is grown over the past years are all reflected in this new edition. The move away from more predictable international grapes and towards less familiar, local varieties is a noticeable trend. Wine that expresses its precise location is once more to the fore, meaning that an Atlas that allows the reader to understand a region's geography is more necessary than ever. The increasing importance of cooler-climate regions as the effects of climate change become more apparent and the growth of China, not just as a consumer of wine but also as a grape-grower and wine producer, are just two of the many other developments covered.
The Atlas is renowned for its superb cartography and this seventh edition has 215 unique maps. Dynamic wine regions such as coastal Croatia, Khaketi in Georgia, Canterbury in New Zealand, Swartland in South Africa, Northern Virginia in the US , and Ningxia in China are examples of just some that are covered in detail for the first time. Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson, the world's most respected wine-writing duo, have again joined
Pocket Wine Book 2014:The original and best, Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book is the ultimate compact guide. Now in its 37th edition, it is the UK's number one wine book for wine-lovers and professionals. It is the key reference for enthusiasts, investors and collectors and this year's edition boasts up-to-date news on more than 6,000 wines, growers and regions, plus invaluable vintage information from experts around the world.
A colour supplement focuses on pinot noir, while a new section offers the reader alternative wines to try based on those they already drink. More than 200 of Johnson's updated favourites are also included.
The Best Wines in the Supermarket 2014:Supermarkets buy the best of world wines; here is the best of their best.
