Originally written by Hugh Johnson, and revised and updated by Jancis Robinson, the bestselling THE WORLD ATLAS OF WINE is widely recognised as one of the most important wine reference books. It includes detailed maps, illustrations, photographs and prose, covering the history and storage of wine throughout the world, the effects of geography and climate, preferred vines, the appellations, laws and traditions that govern production, and much more. The book is now in its sixth edition.
