This is the book I've been waiting for. Anyone who thinks they know anything about this wine MUST buy Wine Report 2004. The concept is so blisteringly simple, I can't fathom why it wasn't thought of long ago. The world of wine is changing so fast that not even the experts can keep up, so the likes of you and I have no chance. That's why Tom Stevenson put together a team of almost 40 wine experts to report on their own specialist subjects each year (and they're all A-list experts). It's full of inside information about what has happened over the last 12 months, plus the latest vintage reports for absolutely everywhere. Sometimes the most obscure wine areas have the largest chapters! Each expert provides Top 10s of the greatest, best value, fastest improving and up-and-coming producers. There are also Top 10s for greatest, best-value and most unusual wines, although it is not meant to a buyer's guide. In fact most of the wines are not even available on the UK market. If you want to buy the best Australian Chardonnay under a fiver, forget this book, but if want to know what the cutting-edge wines are from emerging wine regions or discover new and unusual wines from the world's classic wine regions, then Wine Report is for you. It's a book that won't suit everybody. It assumes a certain level of knowledge - thank goodness! It's fantastic. I cannot wait for Wine Report 2005.

Superb in concept and execution. This book provides the winelover with all the detail and up to the minute news about wine regions across the world. This book is a must have. Tom Stevenson is to be congratulated in pulling all the contributions together in such a uniform and coherent way and I hope that he will have the energy to do the same every year. Winelovers should support him in this endeavour by purchasing this book and recommending it to others.

A very interesting book for anyone who likes a tipple and has anything more than a passing interest in what's in the bottle.
I was particularly interested in the inclusion of Lebanese wine, which, as the section author says, has shown remarkable technical improvement and diversification in recent years. Ksara's Cuvee de Printemps 2001 is indeed a "fabulous, fruity summer red" and the Massaya 2001 Reserve, which has already scooped prizes in Europe, is a revelation.
I also enjoyed the sections on champagne (Mrs Mrad's favourite tipple) and organic wines.
The great thing about the book is its honest, evident in the treatment of Chilean wine. At ten pounds, it is surely one of the year's great bargains.

Ever since I bought this book I have been trying to get it back from other members of the household. Mrs Mrad was particularly taken by the section on champagne, and I was very pleased by the survey of organic wine.
As a native of the Middle East, however, I particularly savoured the section on Lebanese wine, which really is now emerging as a country with surprises, variety and good value. The wines recommended by the writer are uniformly good.
The book is excellent value for money.

HASH(0x9929a1ec) out of 5 stars A very handy and up-to-date resource for the wine lover... 6 Dec. 2003
By JASON M KUGEL - Published on
Format: Paperback
Wine Report 2004 by Tom Stevenson is an exceptional reference for both the expert and the beginner. I'm in the wine business and have dozens of wine books which each have their merits. Mr. Stevenson's New Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia is one of the benchmarks of the business and is respected world over. The Wine Report 2004 is a much smaller book in comparison, but it's chock full of information. Relying on local experts to cover the various regions of the world is a well chosen strategy. The Grapevine section at the beginning of each chapter provides juicy (no pun intended) gossip for wine insiders. It's also great to read the opinions of the experts and their predictions/hopes for the future of wine in their part of the world. The information inside is as current as it gets. Simply a great pocket reference for the wine insider. Well done!

HASH(0x99f14234) out of 5 stars A must have book on current trends in wine 13 Nov. 2003
By Tim W. - Published on
Format: Paperback
Finally a comprehensive review of the world of wines with current information. Tom's cadre of wine experts detail the latest trends & news for each region of the world. They also cover the quality of recent vintages and the reasons behind it. They even pick out top producers, up & comers as well as top notch selections for your consumption. I was especially interested in the variety of topics. To mention a few: Wine & Health, Classic Wine Vintage Guide, Wine on the Web & The 100 Most Exciting Wine Finds.
For those of us looking for current, up to date information in the world of wine this is your bible.

I've tried a few recommendations from the Wine Report, both domestic and European. I must say I haven't been dissappointed yet. I find the book easy to navigate through and highly informative. This book is definitely great for wine novices as well as advanced students of the vine. Thanks Tom! Well done.
