About this title:
Synopsis:
There are few books that have had such a monumental impact in their field as The World Atlas of Wine; sales of the first four editions exceed 3.5 million copies. Now, world-renowned authors Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson have teamed up to combine their unrivalled talents. Together they have created the fifth edition of this masterpiece, making it the most thorough and expansive revision ever of the work. In keeping with the Atlas's reputation for cartographic excellence, all 148 maps from the fourth edition have been completely revised and modernised, with an additional 30 new maps. Hailed by Decanter as Wine Book of the Millennium, The World Atlas of Wine has been described by critics worldwide as 'extraordinary' and 'irreplaceable'. In this, its fifth edition in 30 years, it remains an essential addition to every wine-lovers or professional's library.

Review:
The World Atlas of Wine is something of a dream-team production. The names Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson alone recommend any book on which they appear. The fifth edition (in 30 years) of this astonishingly successful book lives up to, and surpasses, its predecessors. In 350 densely packed but never clotted pages the authors manage the extraordinary feat of characterizing wine production throughout the world, from Vancouver Island to Japan--Buddhists first planted vines in that inhospitably precipitous, monsoon-lashed land over a 1,000 years ago. After a substantial introductory section dealing with the history of wine, its making, storage, and enjoyment, we're off. Starting with (where else?) France and Burgundy, each wine area is summarized in terms of its geography, climate, and preferred vines and the appellations, laws, and traditions that govern production. The discussion of Pomerol, for example, tells you a great deal in one short page. Even since 1994, when the fourth edition came out, vast changes have swept the wine world, and many parts of the atlas have been correspondingly completely reworked. South America, Canada, Southern France, Italy, Greece, Eastern Europe, and the Eastern Mediterranean are among the areas that have benefited. The regional maps that form the core of the book are a triumph of clarity. The whole production constitutes a brilliant achievement of organization and synthesis, forming an indispensable resource for any wine lover at all interested in where the wine they drink comes from and why it tastes the way it does. --Robin Davidson, Amazon.co.uk

About the Author:
Hugh Johnson is widely regarded as the world's foremost wine writer and one of the greatest authorities in his field. Hugh's remarkable series of wine books began in 1966 with the internationally best-selling Wine. Through this and subsequent award-winning titles, including The Story of Wine and The Wine Companion, he reveals a rare talent for making a complex subject both accessible and hugely enjoyable. The first edition of the World Atlas of Wine was published in 1971; acclaimed throughout the world, it has been subsequently translated into 14 languages. Jancis Robinson is internationally renowned for her witty, authoritative wine writing. Her award-winning books, including Vines, Grapes and Wines (1986) and the hugely successful Oxford Companion to Wine (1994, 1999) are among the most important landmarks in wine literature. Critically acclaimed as 'our cleverest, most thoughtful wine writer' (The Observer), 'awesomely intelligent' (The Guardian) and a 'writer of breathtaking clarity' (Wine Spectator), Jancis now lectures, writes and makes regular appearances on television. She is the Financial Times' wine correspondent and writes a column syndicated on five continents.
