By Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson Hailed by Decanter as the "Wine Book of the Millennium," and described by critics worldwide as "extraordinary" and "irreplaceable," there are few volumes that have had as monumental impact in their field as Hugh Johnson's The World Atlas of Wine: sales have exceeded four million copies, and it is now published in thirteen languages.
For this fifth edition, world-renowned authors Johnson and Jancis Robinson have combined their unrivalled talents. Together, they gave this masterpiece its most thorough and expansive revision ever, gathering the best maps and prose from the frontline of the expanding wine world. In keeping with the Atlas's reputation for cartographic excellence, all 148 maps from the fourth edition have been completely revised and modernized, and thirty new ones have been created to cover the world's most dynamic regions, including the southern Rh??ne, Languedoc-Roussillon, southern Italy, northern Spain, central Portugal, South America, Canada, and Hawke's Bay in New Zealand. A truly incomparable book, and an essential addition to every wine lover's or professional's library.
