Publishers Text

Edited by Julia Harding MW, Jancis Robinson OBE MW, and Tara Q. Thomas

  • Over 285,000 copies sold in previous editions
  • Explains in accessible terms information on wine and winemaking that was previously available only in academic and professional publications.
  • Provides on-the-ground reporting from a vast array of highly knowledgeable wine professionals, giving insider information without bias.

New to this Edition:

  • Includes, for the first time, entries on countries such as Estonia, Latvia, and Finland--places previously considered too cold for quality winemaking--as well as Gabon, Senegal, and Uganda.
  • Provides deeper and more extensive coverage on North American wine, with 15 authors working to cover the continent from California to Nova Scotia, from Alaska to Arkansas, and over to Hawaii. Mexico is given far more attention, a reflection of a burgeoning wine industry that's received to date very little recognition.
  • Addresses the increased interest in sustainability, explaining in detail the many ways both producer and consumer can participate.
  • Presents new research that changes and expands our understanding of the wine world, from the DNA profile of a wine grape, or the effects of colonialism on the Algerian wine industry and economy, to the application of blockchain and robotics to making and selling wine.
  • Reveals new insights into the complex chemistry of winemaking and how it affects taste, both positively and negatively. It describes current trends and fashions in wine styles and wine consumption that are always changing.
