Overview

Fundamental to the understanding of wine is a sense of place. Knowing which country, which region, which vineyard, and even which hillside a wine comes from adds enormously to the pleasure of drinking it. Through its unique cartography—more than seventy-five spectacular, hand-painted panoramic maps—and Oz Clarke's lively and opinionated prose, this revolutionary atlas illustrates and explains the vital connections between the land, the winemaker, and the wine.
This edition has been completely revised, updated, and expanded, with a closer look at Napa and Sonoma, and new maps for Chile, Argentina, and elsewhere. No other book maps the world of wine as vividly, and no wine library is complete without Oz Clarke's New Wine Atlas.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
PRAISE FOR OZ CLARKE'S WINE ATLAS (1995)

"The most exciting worldwide collection of wine maps ever."—Wine Spectator

PRAISE FOR OZ CLARKE'S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF GRAPES

"Authoritative . . . Offers in-depth information about today's most important grape varieties."—Anthony Dias Blue, Orient Express Magazine

Publishers Weekly
Wine writer Clarke helps direct armchair connoisseurs to the right vineyards in this revised second edition of his beautifully illustrated guide to the world's great wines. Country by country and region by region, Clarke leads the reader through each location via panoramic maps so meticulously rendered by Keith and Sue Gage that they often convey the feeling of viewing the countryside from a low-flying plane. Beginning with a succinct explanation of how climate, weather conditions and soil affect the growth and taste of grapes, Clarke then moves into a geographical consideration of wines all over the globe, from Austria to Bulgaria to California. With each region-be it the Rhone Valley in France or the Brunello di Montalcino in Italy-Clarke covers history, geography, origins, appellations and classifications. Illustrations inform the reader about soil types and land patterns and show where specific vineyards lie. His margins are filled with samples of wine labels, bottles, various charts of details, keys to the maps and more, all combining to make this first-person account a handsome and truly informative resource.
