9780855334192: Hugh Johnson's Wine Companion: The Encyclopaedia of Wines, Vineyards and Winemakers

Extensively revised and updated by Stephen Brook to include the latest developments in the world of wine, this fifth edition of Wine Companion begins with an analysis of wine and how it is made, with all aspects covered in full. It explores the main grape varieties, indicating where they are grown; wine styles; and the effects of soil and climate. At the heart of the book is an in-depth tour of the world’s wine-growing countries and their wine regions, detailing the major producers, and revealing critical insight into the estates themselves. The journey ends with a practical section on enjoying wine, including how to serve and store it, as well as how to match wine with food.
 
Winner of the André Simon Drink Book of the Year Award.

About the Author:

Hugh Johnson is the world's pre-eminent writer on wine. First published in 1977, his Pocket Wine Book sells hundreds of thousands of copies a year. His winning formula of insight, critical appraisal of the world of wine, plus valuable vintage news and wine recommendations has been often-imitated but never bettered. With the publication of his first book, Wine, Johnson established himself at the age of twenty-seven as the most refreshing and authoritative voice on the subject. During the past four decades he has written books that have become landmarks on the subject, including his classic The World Atlas of Wine, co-authored with Jancis Robinson, his Wine Companion, first published in 2003, and The Story of Wine. In his spare time he writes about gardening from his home in Essex. Stephen Brook is a leading writer on wine and gastronomy. His previous books include Sauternes, The Wines of Germany, and The Wines of California, which won the Prix Lanson, Glenfiddich and Veuve Clicquot awards. He is also the author of Pauillac and Bordeaux: People, Power and Politics, which won the Veuve Clicquot and ICP awards. He also revised the lastest edition of Hugh Johnson's Wine Companion in 2009.
