Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A wine's quality depends largely upon the geographic characteristics of its birthplace. Most major wine-growing regions have atlases that serve to distinguish the origins of their wines. This first-ever wine atlas of Australia and New Zealand defines some 40 distinct wine-growing regions and describes each region's climate, soil, and grape varieties. Wine critic Halliday evaluates more than 600 wineries by quality and price , with top vintage years noted. He also profiles many wine makers so that the reader can get an idea of the personalities behind the products. Given the burgeoning interest in wines from Down Under, this important and attractive book fills a gap in the field.-- Peter C. Leonard, Mt. Lebanon P.L., Pa.
