Format: Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
The 2014 edition of Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book is like its predecessors a true delight. This comes with the slight concern as to how long he can keep calling it a "pocket" book because at over 300 pages it is three times as thick as the one I first purchased in 1980.

As always it is packed with both general and detailed information on the wines of the world. It's not an encyclopaedia of wine as it does not cover every wine or even every wine producing country but it does manage to cover the vast majority. This is not a book for wine snobs (although I would bet that many of them buy this book) but for the vast majority of people who want to have more a detailed wine knowledge at their fingertips. Johnson as always strikes a good balance, not talking down to those who are new or inexperienced in the world of wine, while providing a wealth of information for the more experienced wine lover.

Whether you are buying cases to lay down in your cellar or just popping down to the supermarket to pick up a bottle to have with your Sunday lunch the Pocket Wine Book will be there for you, guiding and informing on one of nature's greatest gifts.
