Enjoying wine even more now,
This review is from: The World Atlas of Wine, 6th Edition (Hardcover)
I got this for my birthday as a wine drinker and lover, and have got a lot out of it. The maps are great, and the detail on each district valuable. Had every producer been reviewed would the book have been extremely large, so a backrground on the typical conditions and wines of the major districts helps to understand better the wines that you drink. I must admit that my next buy would be a more exhaustive catalogue of every wine producer but such a book would have been harder to read.
The history of wine and the decription of each countries and of wine production and techniques is great. I recommend this a a detailed and good overview.
