At 35 ...going from strength to strength, 14 Nov. 2011
If there is a collection that I feel proud of apart from the bottles in my cellar, it is the 35 issues of Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book. Year after year, it provides joy and pleasure, and it is obvious that I can hardly await the latest of the slim booklets. Over the years, I have also made good use of it as a present to friends and colleagues.
I find it fascinating that year after year, Hugh Johnson and his team find treasures in old and new places, well-known and half-forgotten grape varieties. His personal favourites provide an inspiration and information on pairing food and wine prevent potential mishaps when facing the choice.
I look forward to many more issues of the small and essential guide to the enjoyment of wine.
