Editorial Reviews

Review


"Without question the most useful wine book ever published." --Mike Steinberger, Slate.com


"Serious wine geeks know that 'the bible' for the past decade or so has been Jancis Robinson's The Oxford Companion To Wine. The third edition...is impeccably researched and full of well-known facts as well as interesting trivia."--Wine Enthusiast.


"This is a must-have book for wine geeks...highly recommended for anyone with more than a passing interest in wine."--Wine Spectator, "Top 100" issue.


"It's hard to come up with a wine question that you won't find answered here... My advice is simple. Buy it. Now. You'll be glad you did."--Wineloverspage.com.


"An invaluable resource for serious wine drinkers who never quench their thirst for learning about varietals, appellations, wine history, and vineyards."--Business Week.


"It's as addictive as the Internet."--Tara Q. Thomas, Wine & Spirits.


"The third edition of The Oxford Companion to Wine, edited by Jancis Robinson, is the one essential book for any wine-lover... the book is a necessity for those in the wine business, and it offers highly pleasurable browsing for anybody who is remotely curious about why wine is so compelling."--Eric Asimov, The New York Times


"It's a valuable reference book and great fun just to pick up and read."--Ben Giliberti, The Washington Post


"Unquestionably the world's most comprehensive wine resource... Best of all, this isn't a dry encyclopedia... employs a witty insider's tone."--Town & Country


Named one of "20 Essential Books to Build Your Culinary Library" by the James Beard Foundation


A Financial Times 2006 "Pick of the Year".


About the Author

ASSISTANT EDITOR Julia Harding, Master of Wine, studied modern languages at Cambridge before becoming a freelance book editor. She took the Wine and Spirit Education Trust intermediate and advanced certificates and diploma in the late 1990s before going on to work in the Wine Buying department at British wine retailer Waitrose in 2001. Julia qualified as a Master of Wine in 2004, winning the Robert Mondavi award for best theory papers and the Tim Derouet Memorial Prize for excellence in all parts of the exam and dissertation. Now Jancis Robinson's full-time assistant, she was responsible for all entries on oenology and viticulture in this third edition of The Oxford Companion to Wine, and co-ordinated and copy-edited the new and revised text.
