1.0 out of 5 stars Major disappointment 4 Sep 2003
I bought this book because the synopsis says: ” There are twelve detailed maps covering each wine region, identifying the location of the major wine-producing areas and wineries”. What a delusion ! The maps are just nave sketches where the wineries are symbolized by a number. Where are the roads ? The maps are totally useless. The map on page 5 is a missed shot, to put I mildly. I did not know that Hunter Valley is just south of Perth and that Barossa is between Melbourne and Sydney. The book contains no tasting notes as stated in the synopsis. The information about the producers is only superficial. I want my money back !

2.0 out of 5 stars not as much detail as the California edition 7 April 2008
By R. J. Van Ginneken - Published on Amazon.com
The Mitchell Beazly guide for California (author: Steven Brook) has more detail about the region and its districts than this one. But I guess it's useful as a guide when visiting the area, rather than giving a detailed description of all producers mentioned.
