The World Atlas of Wine is renowned for its splendid cartography. It has been the go-to work on wine geography since it was first published in 1971. Revised for the first time since 2013, it remains an essential and definitive reference for beverage professionals and anyone with a serious interest in wine.
Now containing 230 detailed maps—often including explanations of soil compositions—of the world's wine regions, the Atlas combines the insight and authority of its creator, Hugh Johnson, and of Jancis Robinson, who is also the editor of Wine Grapes and The Oxford Companion to Wine.
Organized by region, it covers more than 30 countries, from Argentina and Bulgaria to Turkey and Uruguay. In between are chapters on China and Japan, Georgia and New Zealand, with major portions of the book devoted to France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Germany. Relevant, revealing, and recognized worldwide for its perception, this is a core book in a wine library.
Hardcover. Maps and color illustrations throughout.
