Overview

Limited collector's slipcase edition- each book is individually numbered with a specially designed book plate personally signed by both authors.

The seventh edition will confirm the status of The World Atlas of Wine as the most essential and authoritative wine reference work.

The world's increasing appetite for wine is matched by a growing thirst for knowledge,which this book will amply satisfy.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Johnson and Robinson's newest edition of what has become a classic in oenology is listed as "Completely Revised and Updated." And it would have to be in order to keep up with the explosion in the popularity of wine and winemaking and the changes that have taken place in the science of wine production since the 2001 edition of this book. Beautifully illustrated and colorfully formatted, the volume is chock-full of information about wine production that is not easily found in most libraries. The introductory section includes 20 articles, most consisting of a two-page spread, on such topics as wine production and consumption; wine in ancient and medieval times; and winemaking, bottling, storing, serving, and tasting. The bulk of the volume covers geographical areas, with detailed maps showing wine-producing areas and some named vineyards. Labels of the authors' choices for the best wines of the area are included. The photographs that accompany each article give the reader a sense of the character of the region, complementing the descriptions of the geography, the climate, the wines, and the region's place in the worldwide market. BOTTOM LINE Well worth the price, this reference book is highly recommended for all public libraries, academic libraries supporting the culinary arts, anthropology, or popular culture programs, and all individuals who love wine.-Rosanne M. Cordell, Schurz Lib., Indiana Univ. South Bend
