Reviews

...the most useful book on wine ever written; it is also one of the most enjoyable. Kathleen Burk, The Week Those readers interested enough in the subject to buy the first edition are pretty much compelled to buy all subsequent ones, for the knowledge encompassed in them changes not only rapidly, but also radically. Paul Levy, Times Literary Supplement No wine-lover's bookshelves should be without Jonathan Ray, Daily Telegraph The essential reference book David Baker, Financial Times Wine anoraks will want Jancis Robinson's revised, encyclopaedic The Oxford Companion to Wine.
