4.0 out of 5 stars crucial wine rsearch and revision aid
excellent guide, the little brother of the big atlas but one you can actually carry in your bag. the graphical approach suddenly puts things into focus. If you're studying for your advanced or diploma on the WSET or simply want to know where you wine comes from and why climate, soil, altitude etc make such a difference to growing grapes, this is a bargain book to keep and...

I bought this item as a gift for for my boyfriend because we have planned a tour of France an Italy next summer and are interested in wine....I thought it would be a good book to scan through to get info about which regions we should visit etc but it...

This review is from: Concise World Atlas of Wine (Paperback)
A good reference for any one aiming to have a good level in wine knowledge.
Information from offical bodies is well stated.
Lighter book in weight for those who study WSET anywhere in the world, easier to carry on than Concise Oxford Wine Companion.
Perfect for students and wine lovers wishing to have references from wine regions of all over the world.
Highly recommended.

This is a very detailed book and contains lots of concise and interesting information on a variety of wine making regions. I bought this item as a gift for for my boyfriend because we have planned a tour of France an Italy next summer and are interested in wine....I thought it would be a good book to scan through to get info about which regions we should visit etc but it doesn't seem like it's going to be an easy as I thought. There are lovely maps in this book which are good for seeing where each type of wine is produced but for more information I think we would need to sit down and read the book in detail, and this would take a while as there is a lot of writing! I would recommend this book to someone who wants to geek up on wine but if you are looking for something a bit more accessible i'd try a smaller book...maybe with bullet points rather than paragraph after paragraph of writing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Burgundy, Bordeaux and some other areas that produce a bit of plonk, 27 Dec 2011
This review is from: Concise World Atlas of Wine (Paperback)
The review title summarises the content. The wine snobs guide to world wine. As everyone knows, wine only comes from Bordeaux and Burgundy - doesn't it?... the rest of the world is not worth writing about - or so you'd get the impression from the contents. For example - Bordeaux occupies 30 pages - the whole of the Piemonte is dismissed in three. Not an interesting book, imballanced content, many great wine areas dismissed with no real detail - fair bit on USA, Australia seems not to produce very much or so you'd believe - nothing worth any detail anyway according to the authors. There are zillions of wine books, this one is very poor and not worth the money. Don't buy.
