The World Atlas of Wine

6th Edition

"Immense and beautiful - almost drinkable" - Midweek, BBC Radio 4
"Simply superb work... buy it if you like wine at all." - Victoria Moore, The Telegraph
"If I owned only one wine book, it would be this one. And this edition, please." - Andrew Jefford, Decanter
Few wine books can be called classic but the first edition of The World Atlas of Wine made publishing history when it appeared in 1971. It is recognized by critics as the most essential and authoritative wine reference work available. This seventh edition will bring readers, both old and new, bang up to date with the world of wine.
Much has changed since the last edition of the Atlas in 2007. Changes in climate, in winemaking technique, in fashion, and in where wine is grown over the past years are all reflected in this new edition. The move away from more predictable international grapes and towards less familiar, local varieties is a noticeable trend. Wine that expresses its precise location is once more to the fore, meaning that an Atlas that allows the reader to understand a region's geography is more necessary than ever. The increasing importance of cooler-climate regions as the effects of climate change become more apparent and the growth of China, not just as a consumer of wine but also as a grape-grower and wine producer, are just two of the many other developments covered.
The Atlas is renowned for its superb cartography and this seventh edition has 215 unique maps. Dynamic wine regions such as coastal Croatia, Khaketi in Georgia, Canterbury in New Zealand, Swartland in South Africa, Northern Virginia in the US , and Ningxia in China are examples of just some that are covered in detail for the first time. Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson, the world's most respected wine-writing duo, have again joined
forces to create a classic that no wine lover can afford to be without.

Rezension
There's an infectious sense of glee about this new atlas. Henry Jefferys The Guardian
Portrait
Hugh Johnson, geboren 1939 in London, besuchte das Internat in Rugby und absolvierte ein Anglistikstudium am King's College in Cambridge. Sein Weinwissen erwarb er sich zunächst als Mitglied der Wine and Food Society in Cambridge. Nach Abschluss seines Studiums arbeitete er als Redakteur für "Vogue" und "House & Garden". 1963 wurde er Generalsekretär der Wine and Food Society sowie Herausgeber von "Wine and Food". Gleichzeitig war er als Weinkorrespondent für "The Sunday Times" tätig und begann die Arbeit an seinem ersten Buch "Wine" (1966).
Nach einem Jahr als Chefredakteur des Reiseressorts von "The Sunday Times" wurde Hugh Johnson Herausgeber von "Queen". 1971 gelang ihm mit der Publikation des ersten Atlas über die weltweite Weinproduktion "The World Atlas of Wine" der durchschlagende Erfolg. Mittlerweile wurde das Buch in rund ein Dutzend Sprachen übersetzt und weltweit über 3,5 Millionen Mal verkauft.
