Well written and enjoyable to read. A very thorough guide to the history of region, the styles of Port and the producers. If you want to know about Port, this is the book to read.

HASH(0x8a857768) out of 5 stars Definitive, comprehensive, informative, articulate. 7 Aug. 2000
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Port And The Douro is the fascinating story of Port over the centuries and surveys the remarkable physical conditions of the wine growing region of Portugal, the grape varieties, and the vineyards that make the Douro valley so special. Richard Mayson draws upon his many years of experience in the wine trade in general and his remarkable expertise in Port wines and how they are made. Port And The Douro is definitive, comprehensive, informative, articulate, and greatly rewarding reading for connoisseurs, dealers, and the nonspecialist general reader seeking to select just the right Port for the occasion.
HASH(0x8a8575d0) out of 5 stars For the lover of the grape 17 May 2014
By G. L. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great for those that want the detail of port at the academic and historical level. Looking for a "junk food" level tour of this wine style, go elsewhere! In depth and enteresting. Get a favorite Port, and enjoy this one!

HASH(0x8a841d38) out of 5 stars FOR THE PORT ENTHUSIAST 24 Jun. 2010
By David F. John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Gave this book to a good friend who has formed a circle of fellow connoisseurs of port wine.

I read enough of the book to know that it contains some interesting background on the particularities of this specialty product and its history.

Definitely not for the general audience, but appropriate for the aficionado.

Good source for rare and out of print books.
