Having devoted considerable time and effort to plowing through this massive volume, I'm left with the sense Lewin never really decided what this book should be. It's not a survey or basic reference on the order of Johnson's "World Atlas," although it does include a "touch 'em all" review of just about every wine producing region in the world. It isn't a screed along the lines of Nossiter's "Liquid Memory," although Lewin does sprinkle the book with observations about the esthetics of wine, the role of wine criticism and related topics. It isn't an expose like Brook's "Bordeaux - People, Power and Politics," yet Lewin does go out of his way to debunk what he views as "wine myths" and to stir up some controversy.Read more ›
