This review is from: Wine Grapes: A complete guide to 1,368 vine varieties, including their origins and flavours (Hardcover)
This large, heavy and expensive encyclopaedia of wine grapes is beautifully produced. It is a worthy replacement for Jancis's original 'Vines, Grapes, Wines' published 27 years ago.

Worthy and comprehensive but completely turgid and therefore barely readable. It lacks the fun, soul and readability of her previous Vines, Grapes and Wines - which I found excellent - but now in need of an update.

This review is from: Wine Grapes: A complete guide to 1,368 vine varieties, including their origins and flavours (Hardcover)
Very detailed and useful for the professional as well as the amateur. Great as a reference to dip into time and time again to learn more about different types of grapes.

This review is from: Wine Grapes: A complete guide to 1,368 vine varieties, including their origins and flavours (Hardcover)
Not a coffee table book, a wine guide to beat all wine guides. A book every wine lover should have.
