The seventh edition will confirm the status of The World Atlas of Wine as the most essential and authoritative wine reference work. Reflecting the changing nature of the wine scene, the Atlas details developments in climate, technique and fashion as well as new regulations made over the last six years. A new Australian map highlights the importance of cool-climate regions as global warming takes effect, for example,while dynamic regions such as coastal Croatia, South Africa's Swartland and Ningxia in China are covered for the first time. The world's increasing appetite for wine is matched by a growing thirst for knowledge,which this book will amply satisfy.

About the Author:


Jancis Robinson's award-winning books Vines, Grapes and Wine (1986) and the hugely successful Oxford Companion to Wine (1994, 1999, 2006), are landmarks in wine literature. Jancis is the Financial Times' wine correspondent and is critically acclaimed as the "woman who makes the wine world gulp when she speaks" (USA Today) and "our favorite wine writer" (Playboy). Jancis was the first person outside the wine trade to qualify as a Master of Wine, in 1984. She was awarded an OBE in 2003 and the Officier de l'Ordre du Mérite Agricole in 2010 by the French Minister of Agriculture.

Hugh Johnson has led the world of wine writing in many new directions over the 40 years since his first book, Wine, was published. The World Atlas of Wine, his Wine Companion (now in its sixth edition), the annual Pocket Wine Book (since 1977), The Story ofWine, and his memoir, A Life Uncorked, have all been best-sellers. Indeed, his Pocket Wine is the
world's best-selling annual wine book. His unique approach, serious and informed, yet entertaining and unpretentious, has earned him the admiration of wine lovers all over the world. In 2007, Hugh was awarded an OBE for services to winemaking.

Review:

"The World Atlas of Wine has always had extraordinary scope and the seventh edition is no different...Beautifully done."―Bill Saporito, TIME Magazine

"The most authoritative wine reference book available ... with words and graphics that set a new publishing standard on the subject."
Fred Malkin, Oregon Magazine


"The World Atlas of Wine is the single most important reference book on the shelf of any wine student."―Eric Asimov, The New York Times

"It's difficult to review 'The World Atlas of Wine' without gushing ... the 7th edition raises the bar again, primarily by maintaining its already high standard and expanding its maps and coverage of growing wine regions in China, Australia and North America."
Joe Roberts, WineDude.com

"If I owned only one wine book, it would be this one. And this edition, please."―Andrew Jefford, Decanter

"The essential rootstock of any true wine lover's library. A multi-layered snapshot of wine and how it has evolved."―Dave McIntyre, Washington Post

"Every wine lover's bible...pouring decades of wine knowledge into succinct paragraphs that place each country and region in context."―LA Times

"It is a testament to Johnson and Robinson's heroic efforts to create a true reference volume that they have survey the world and attempted to include the major changes that have come to the different regions of the world over the past few years."
Tom Wark, Fermentation: The Daily Wine Blog


"Simply put, there is no better wine reference book on the planet than the new, seventh edition of The World Atlas of Wine by Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. It's an absolute must for wine enthusiasts: an essential, authoritative and beautifully produced wine companion."―Ted Scheffler, Salt Lake City Weekly

Book Description Octopus Publishing Group, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. 7th ed.. Language: English. Brand new Book. "Immense and beautiful - almost drinkable" -- Midweek, BBC Radio 4 "Simply superb work. buy it if you like wine at all." -- Victoria Moore, The Telegraph "If I owned only one wine book, it would be this one. And this edition, please." -- Andrew Jefford, DecanterFew wine books can be called classic but the first edition of The World Atlas of Wine made publishing history when it appeared in 1971. It is recognized by critics as the most essential and authoritative wine reference work available. This seventh edition will bring readers, both old and new, bang up to date with the world of wine.Much has changed since the last edition of the Atlas in 2007. Changes in climate, in winemaking technique, in fashion, and in where wine is grown over the past years are all reflected in this new edition. The move away from more predictable international grapes and towards less familiar, local varieties is a noticeable trend. Wine that expresses its precise location is once more to the fore, meaning that an Atlas that allows the reader to understand a region's geography is more necessary than ever. The increasing importance of cooler-climate regions as the effects of climate change become more apparent and the growth of China, not just as a consumer of wine but also as a grape-grower and wine producer, are just two of the many other developments covered.The Atlas is renowned for its superb cartography and this seventh edition has 215 unique maps. Dynamic wine regions such as coastal Croatia, Khaketi in Georgia, Canterbury in New Zealand, Swartland in South Africa, Northern Virginia in the US , and Ningxia in China are examples of just some that are covered in detail for the first time.
