About the Author

Hugh Johnson is the world's pre-eminent writer on wine. First published in 1977, his Pocket Wine Book sells hundreds of thousands of copies a year. His winning formula of insight, critical appraisal of the world of wine, plus valuable vintage news and wine recommendations has been often-imitated but never bettered. With the publication of his first book, Wine, Johnson established himself at the age of twenty-seven as the most refreshing and authoritative voice on the subject. During the past four decades he has written books that have become landmarks on the subject, including his classic The World Atlas of Wine, co-authored with Jancis Robinson, his Wine Companion, first published in 2003, and The Story of Wine. In his spare time he writes about gardening from his home in Essex. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good guide, though a little dry.. 29 May 2002
By A Customer
A useful rather than exciting guidebook to the French wine regions with tips on places to stay and eat, including detailed listings of the author's recommended wine growers. I found the map pages not particularly useful or explanatory.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must for travellers 28 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This books contains informative descriptions, combined with detailed maps, and beautiful pictures, covering all the major wine producing regions of France. In addition, the author includes his favorite vineyards for each region. This book is a must for anyone travelling to France or just interested in learning more about the wine producing regions of France. Included in each section are a few selections on where to eat and where to stay as well. Having personally taken this book on my most recent trip, I can give it my hearty endorsement.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Wine Lovers 12 Dec 2013

Book is out of print, but this edition is still worth the money......has a terrific overview of French wine country.
5.0 out of 5 stars very useful in locating wines and their vineyards 19 Jun 2002
By Rosengarten - Published on Amazon.com
The Wine Atlas of France by Hubrecht Duijker (with support from Hugh Johnson) is the best way to start exploring the various famous French wine regions by car. After presentation of the history and a description of a particular wine region, the book lists the address and describes the important wine estates of the region. Suggested routes for driving as well as listings of the top regional restaurants and hotels, in order to recover from the wine tasting. Besides excellent maps of different scales to find your way round the book has superb pictures so that you know what to expect. Alternatively, you may first want to use the book to browse through the various wine regions. Even without using the book as a travel guide it is very useful in locating wines and their vineyards.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide to wineries in France 10 Aug 2002
By L. Peppin - Published on Amazon.com
My husband and I wanted to do some time in "wine country" during our 1 year stay in France. We picked up this book at a local "english language library" and it was great! It really gives a lot of good information about the regions, the wineries, and the traveller's perspective on wine country in general. We've also used it extensively to document our pictures after the fact -- you know how you can forget the names of the 20 chateaux and 12 towns you visited! Well, this book provides enough information to put it back together when you are looking at a picture of a very pretty building which you cannot remember the name of.
It doesn't cover particular wines in detail (mentioning only a few), but for wineries, its a great guide.
