Winner of the Andre Simon Drink Book of the YearShortlisted for the Louis Roederer Wine Book of the Year 2020″One book deserves a place on every wine drinker’s shelf, and that is The World Atlas of Wine” – Victoria Moore in the Telegraph”magisterial” – Fiona Beckett, Guardian “a key reference material for any sommelier, wine professional or any amateur serious about their passion” – Imbibe “The most useful single volume on wine ever published…

If I owned only one wine book, it would be this one.” – Andrew Jefford, Decanter Few wine books can be called classic, but the first edition of The World Atlas of Wine made publishing history when it appeared in 1971.

It is recognized by critics as the essential and most authoritative wine reference work available.

This eighth edition will bring readers, both old and new, up to date with the world of wine. To reflect all the changes in the global wine scene over the past six years, the Atlas has grown in size to 416 pages and 22 new maps have been added to the wealth of superb cartography in the book.

The text has been given a complete overhaul to address the topics of most vital interest to today’s wine-growers and drinkers.

With beautiful photography throughout, Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson, the world’s most respected wine-writing duo, have once again joined forces to create a classic that no wine lover can afford to be without. “The World Atlas of Wine is the single most important reference book on the shelf of any wine student.” – Eric Asimov, New York Times’Simply superb work… buy it if you like wine at all.’ – Victoria Moore, Telegraph “Like a good bottle of wine, you’ll find yourself going back to it again and again…

Perfect for anyone who has a thirst for greater wine knowledge.” – Edward Deitch, NBC/”The World Atlas of Wine belongs on your shelf…

The essential rootstock of any true wine lover’s library.

A multi-layered snapshot of wine and how it has evolved.” – Dave McIntyre, Washington Post
