The World Atlas of Wine Synopsis

This major new edition confirms the status of The World Atlas of Wine as the most essential and authoritative wine reference work. Reflecting the changing nature of the wine scene, the new edition takes into account changes in climate, techniques, fashion and new regulations over the last six years. A new Australian map highlights the importance of cool-climate regions as global warming takes effect, for example, while dynamic regions such as coastal Croatia, South Africa's Swartland, northern Virginia in the US and Ningxia in China are covered for the first time. A fresh new design, a bold new 'infographic' illustration style and stunning new images make the visual appeal of the atlas as strong as its expert, accessible text. The world's increasing appetite for wine is matched by a growing thirst for knowledge, which this book will amply satisfy.
