Nicholas Faith's first wine book, The Winemasters was published in 1978 and won the Andre Simon award. He has written other well-received works on Champagne and on major Bordeaux chateaux, including The Winemasters of Bordeaux.

He is also the author of Mitchell Beazley's Classic Wine Library Cognac and Australia's Liquid Gold in this same series, and he writes for numerous magazines and newspapers, including The Financial Times.

Review:

"A well-written, informative page-turner that's definitely worth the investment." - Jancis Robinson "This book is the most up to date literature that can be found about cognac; the drink and the region, and certainly makes for a 'must read' for anyone who pays homage to the wonder that is eaux-de-vie." - CognacExpert.com "If you're looking to understand the world of cognac this is one book worth investing in." - diffordsguide.com On previous editions of Cognac "Combines history, geography, human interest, business, marketing, controversy and of course cognac the drink in an account that is racy, witty and entirely without pomposity." - Judges of the Deinhard/Wine Magazine award "This season's stand out is Cognac ... Faith artfully demonstrates how the history, geography, sociobiology, politics and economics of the town come together." - New York Times "Here, one feels, is a wine journalist who is prepared to probe beneath the surface." - Wine & Spirit "His evocation of the past is as convincing as his judgment on the present." - The Times "An imaginative and well-researched account of cognac ... a jolly good read it certainly is." - The Independent
