About the Author
Jancis Robinson's award-winning books Vines, Grapes and Wine (1986) and the hugely successful Oxford Companion to Wine (1994, 1999, 2006), are landmarks in wine literature. Jancis is the Financial Times' wine correspondent and is critically acclaimed as the "woman who makes the wine world gulp when she speaks" (USA Today) and "our favorite wine writer" (Playboy). Jancis was the first person outside the wine trade to qualify as a Master of Wine, in 1984. She was awarded an OBE in 2003 and the Officier de l'Ordre du Mérite Agricole in 2010 by the French Minister of Agriculture.
Hugh Johnson has led the world of wine writing in many new directions over the 40 years since his first book, Wine, was published. The World Atlas of Wine, his Wine Companion (now in its sixth edition), the annual Pocket Wine Book (since 1977), The Story ofWine, and his memoir, A Life Uncorked, have all been best-sellers. Indeed, his Pocket Wine is the
world's best-selling annual wine book. His unique approach, serious and informed, yet entertaining and unpretentious, has earned him the admiration of wine lovers all over the world. In 2007, Hugh was awarded an OBE for services to winemaking.

This book answers everything you have ever wondered about wine!
The maps are all extremely detailed and it adds an extra dimension to the book making it so much more interesting.
I never expected a book to have this many geological details and I'm also impressed that the authors are really great experts in wine, winery, and wine culture. Great piece which deserves to be owned by every wine lover out there..
Although there are several editions to this book, I liked this one for it's affordability and appearance.
Side note. Watch different sellers for the best pricing on this book. I purchased mine for approximately $16 on Prime last fall. Then saw it priced at $49.95 from another seller so I waited and shopped around until I came across this one for my gift giving. I believe I paid under $24. I'm extremely pleased with this purchase
Chock full of information from different regions and the Wines produced. A must have for that wine enthusiast who has everything.
The details about the many growing regions of the world are fantastic. This book will help you select wines from a region, not just by varietal or by country, but even by vineyard or block. The maps show incredible detail. Every wine lover should have this book.
There is only one negative, and that is a book cannot contain every location and winery. So sometimes it won't be there. But overall, this book has to contain 99% of all wine regions, and certainly all the well known ones. You are likely to discover a winery in your backyard, even if you are not in one of the famous wine regions!
