VINE VOICEon 5 December 2013
Format: HardcoverVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I'm not really a wine buff, but I do like nice wine, and I like to make an informed decision about what I buy rather than believe the advertising blurb. Any knowledge I did have is way out of date as I know nothing at all about wine from countries like Chile. So, this is a really useful book that's easy to dip into from time to time, to find out what you want. Not the kind of thing to read from cover to cover, but you wouldn't expect that. To be honest it has more information that I really need, and is probably more aimed to appeal to an actual wine buff. It's also a beautiful-looking, big, colourful book, well-designed with lots of maps and pictures. Even if you know a lot about wine already, I imagine this is just the kind of thing you'd like to have on your coffee table. Would make an excellent gift for a wine-loving male relative who likes to impress with his knowledge!

I honestly cannot remember the last time that a book brought me this much pleasure.

The paper is very high quality and makes the photos jump out of the pages, the early pages are a fascinating background to wine, and then the regional pages with maps and associated facts are just wonderful.

I am enjoying having a glass of wine, while reading about the area in this book.

The regional pages really are a total delight with notes about the area, the history of wine making in the region, labels of wines, and wonderful maps to loose oneself in while dreaming of wine based holidays.

This book has already brought me hours of pleasure and I am sure will continue to.

I cannot recommend it strongly enough.

This is a HUGE book (over 400 pages), filled with every conceivable piece of information the serious wine enthusiast could ever want to know (and a bit more on top). It is most likely wasted on the not-so-serious wine drinker (like myself), but to those who truly care (like my in-laws), it is a treasure trove of information. It is also an attractive volume, filled with full colour photos, illustrations and maps and will (hopefully) make an excellent Xmas gift!

The latest version of this wine classic - if you are at all interested in wine this is a must have

the beautiful maps and the complimentary text and diagrams show so much of just about every wine region in the world (even China this time!)

Not just a coffee table special but a genuine reference an source book and amazing value
