Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson Book and Novel

Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson - Authors


Hugh Johnson has led the world of wine writing in new directions over the 40 years since his first book, Wine, was published. The World Atlas of Wine, his Wine Companion (now in its sixth edition), the annual Pocket Wine Book (since 1977), The Story of Wine, and his memoirs, A Life Uncorked, have all been best-sellers. Indeed, his Pocket Wine is the world's best-selling annual wine book. In 2007, Hugh was awarded an OBE for services to winemaking. Jancis Robinson's award-winning books Vines, Grapes and Wine (1986), the hugely successful Oxford Companion to Wine (1994, 1999, 2006) and Wine Grapes (2012) are landmarks in wine literature. Jancis is the Financial Times wine correspondent and her award-winning website, www.jancisrobinson.com, has subscribers in 100 countries. Jancis was the first person outside the wine trade to qualify as a Master of Wine, in 1984. She was awarded an OBE in 2003 and the Officier de l'Ordre du Merite Agricole in 2010 by the French Minister of Agriculture.
