The Book Everyone is Talking About
Tucked between the pages of The World Atlas of Wine is, quite literally, EVERYTHING you need to know about wine. With rich knowledge, the seasoned wine-writing duo, Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson, journey through vines, grapes, terroir, weather and the anatomies of vineyards, wineries and home cellars. The book charts global wine trends, such as the move from predictable international grapes towards less familiar, local varieties that are lighter and more representative of their geographies. The real stars of the book, though, are the chapters that document the perennials’ rise to global esteem. From France and Italy to up-and-coming producers, like South Africa and New Zealand, this atlas misses nothing. Loaded with stunning maps and landscapes, Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson’s The World Atlas of Wine, goes for $55. Every wine drinker should own it.
