Ben Howkins has written an excellent book that lists and details all aspects of port that one could possibly want to know. Whether one is merely a temporary fan of the drink, or a lifelong follower, this book will provide interesting and relevant information for all.
Howkins has a clear style of writing that makes a nervous reader comfortable. It is clearly written by an expert content to pass on his knowledge. An excellent present for port and wine lovers, replacing the traditional wine gifts with something a little more exceptional, as port is.

After a Douro Cruise I bought this book to supplement information gained on visits to Ferreira in Vila Nova Da Gaia & Sandeman's Quinta Da Seixo near Pinhão in the Douro. It was read withing 30 hours of receiving it - so it's an easy read and contains much very good information. However, while it appears that the preface has been thoroughly updated in this edition and also the tables of vintages in the appendix, there are some instances where the main body of the text is out of date, e.g. "The Douro is not navigable".....!

All in all a good value book which I could recommend to anyone wishing to learn more, fully updated it would be 5 Star.
