The World Atlas of Wine
by Jancis Robinson and Hugh Johnson




Overview -
The seventh edition of the The World Atlas of Wine brings readers the very latest developments from the world's wine-growing regions, enhanced by new maps, photographs and info-graphics.

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.

Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson, the world's most respected wine-writing duo, have again joined forces to create a classic that no wine lover can afford to be without.
