This is an outstanding book and truly worth the price.

I purchased this book for my staff to read as they had requested a book that explained wines.

Thank you

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A very approachable book, far better than most 'resource books' I have come across.

I have completed Level One through the International Sommelier Guild, and this is a wonderful bridge into Level Two.
Rather than an overwhelming dump of information - like the Oxford Companion can sometimes be - this book takes a much more readable approach. I am literally reading this book cover to cover with much enjoyment.

However, do not get the wrong idea. This book does cram a huge amount of information between its covers. The maps, as many other reviews vouch, are really excellent.

This will take the beginner deep into wine right from the get-go, or for the more intermediate, function as a refresher in the first pages and then plunge deep into the required geography and terroir.

Format: Hardcover
This is a highly educational book, but one that should not be approached without also buying Jancis Robinson's The Oxford Companion to Wine, or without reading it with your smart phone/computer beside you so you can look up the immense amount of words they use, yet do not explain. This is an Atlas, it explains wines based on region and topography, it does not in-dept cover many questions the reader will have about appellations, sub-appellations, tastes, descriptions, comparisons, etc. Do not read this as your first wine book. *A mistake I was making and then stopped, and revisited this book after reading some intro books*

If you have taken a wine course, or have read an introductory book (I would recommend Andrea Robinson's Great Wine made Simple), then this is a good next step.
