Overview


"One of the most influential wine books of all time" (Lawrence Osborne, The Accidental Connoisseur)

Bordeaux and Its Wines, now in its seventeenth edition, is the ultimate book on the most legendary of all wine regions. Since 1846, "the classic reference work on Bordeaux wines" (Jancis Robinson, The Oxford Companion to Wine) has guided wine connoisseurs, wine professionals, and vineyard investors through this complex region, providing detailed information on every one of its 1,800 vineyards, more than 14,500 wine brands, and 200 wine merchants. No other title comes close to the comprehensive information on Bordeaux wines and wineries presented in this book. While 'Feret', as it is colloquially known, is used by professionals for its comprehensive treatment of all facets of the Bordeaux wine region and industry, there is also information on the art of selecting, drinking and storing Bordeaux.

Bordeaux and Its Wines is indispensable for the serious wine enthusiast.
