Summary : "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 "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/today.com "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

Summary : The worldwide bestseller - 1/4 million copies sold 'Written by a World Barista Champion and co-founder of the great Square Mile roasters in London, this had a lot to live up to and it certainly does. Highly recommended for anyone into their coffee and interested in finding out more about how it's grown, processed and roasted.' (Amazon customer) 'Whether you are an industry professional, a home enthusiast or anything in between, I truly believe this is a MUST read.' (Amazon customer) 'Informative, well-written and well presented. Coffee table and reference book - a winner' (Amazon customer) 'Very impressive. It's amazing how much territory is covered without overwhelming the reader. The abundant photos and images are absolutely coffee-table-worthy, but this book is so much more. I think it would be enjoyable for an obsessed coffee geek or someone who just enjoys their java.' (Amazon customer) For everyone who wants to understand more about coffee and its wonderful nuances and possibilities, this is the book to have. Coffee has never been better, or more interesting, than it is today. Coffee producers have access to more varieties and techniques than ever before and we, as consumers, can share in that expertise to make sure the coffee we drink is the best we can find. Where coffee comes from, how it was harvested, the roasting process and the water used to make the brew are just a few of the factors that influence the taste of what we drink. Champion barista and coffee expert James Hoffmann examines these key factors, looking at varieties of coffee, the influence of terroir, how it is harvested and processed, the roasting methods used, through to the way in which the beans are brewed. Country by country - from Bolivia to Zambia - he then identifies key characteristics and the methods that determine the quality of that country's output. Along the way we learn about everything from the development of the espresso machine, to why strength guides on supermarket coffee are really not good news. This is the first book to chart the coffee production of over 35 countries, encompassing knowledge never previously published outside the coffee industry.

Summary : Winner of the prestigious André Simon Drink Book Award The first definitive reference book to describe, region-by-region, how the great wines of Europe should taste. This will be the go-to guide for aspiring sommeliers, wine aficionados who want to improve their blind tasting skills, and amateur enthusiasts looking for a straightforward and visceral way to understand and describe wine. In this seminal addition to the wine canon, noted experts Rajat Parr and Jordan Mackay share everything they've learned in their decades of tasting wine. The result is the most in-depth study of the world's greatest wine regions ever published. There are books that describe the geography of wine regions. And there are books that describe the way basic wines and grapes should taste. But there are no books that describe the intricacies of the way wines from various subregions, soils, and appellations should taste. Now, for the first time ever, you can learn about the differences between wines from the 7 grand crus and 40 premier crus of Chablis, or the terroirs in Barolo, Champagne, and Bordeaux. Paying attention to styles, winemakers, soils, and the most cutting-edge of trends, this book explains how to understand the wines of the world not in the classical way, but in the modern way--appellation by appellation, soil by soil, technique by technique--making it an essential reference and instant classic.

Summary : 'On Wine-which brings together dozens of "articles, reviews, and introductions," from titles as various as Vogue, Decanter, The Sunday Times Wine Club newsletter Wine Times, and the journal you have in your hands, as well as snippets from Johnson's bestselling books-has many moments where the writing transcends the ostensible subject matter.' The World of Fine Wine One of the world's great authorities on wine, Hugh Johnson has been writing on the subject (among others) for almost six decades. This selection chronicles his personal take on developments that have revolutionised the industry for half a century and more. Johnson's prose describes as no one else can the endlessly fascinating characters and landscapes of the wine world. He tells of setting sail with sybarites and braving the perfect storm, he debates at length the Pleasure Principle, lip-smacks through decadent dinners, teaches and learns in Tokyo and files breathless dispatches from Beijing. He bids a poignant farewell to the loveliest vintages, decries peremptory judgement and urges the Slow Food philosophy; falls in love (again), this time with Tokaji, tells warm winter tales through a vintage port and sets out a summer picnic at the source of the Seine - all the while dryly annotating the scribbles of his younger self with contemporary marginal hindsights. This thoughtful, illuminating collection will delight not only lovers of wine, food, history and travel but also anyone who enjoys the intoxicating power of words.

Summary : The Oz Clarke Wine Atlas takes the reader on a 'grand tour' of the great wine regions of the world. With more than 75 hand-painted panoramic maps accompanied by opinionated prose, this atlas illustrates and explains the vital connections between the landcape and the wine. Fundamental to the understanding of wine is a sense of place. Knowing which country, which region, which hillside and which vineyard a wine comes from adds enormously to the pleasure of drinking it. ‘There’s no livelier, more knowledgeable wine writer than Oz Clarke. His opinionated prose resounds through every chapter.’ The Washington Post ‘best of all, Mr Clarke’s sharp-edged, spicy commentary makes this atlas a joy to read, not just a useful reference too.’ Wall Street Journal Europe ‘Clarke spins word pictures on what makes wine what it is with authority, color and clarity. To read his explanation of what makes each region special is to find yourself smelling the air and feeling the rocks under your feet. It’s the next best thing to being there.’ Wine Spectator ‘Clarke is one of the most out-spoken and entertaining wine writers. His prose is sharp-edged, informative, wonderfully readable and, best of all, completely unpretentious.’ Anthony Dias Blue, Mercury News
