Published in 1994 to worldwide acclaim, the first edition of Jancis Robinson’s The Oxford Wine Companion immediately attained legendary status.
The book won every major wine book award including the Glenfiddich and Julia Child/IACP awards, as well as writer and woman of the year accolades on both sides of the Atlantic.
Now exhaustively updated, the fourth edition of The Oxford Companion to Wine incorporates the very latest international research to present 300 new entries on topics ranging from additives to Zelen.
Over 60 per cent of all entries have been revised; and useful lists and statistics are appended, including a unique list of the world’s controlled appellations and their permitted grape varieties, as well as vineyard area, wine production and consumption by country.
Illustrated with almost 30 updated maps of every important wine region in the world, many useful charts and diagrams, and 16 stunning colour photographs.
The Oxford Wine Companion is unlike any other wine book, offering an understanding of wine in all of its wider contexts – notably historical, cultural, and scientific.
The Washington Post described it as “The Greatest Wine Book Ever Published”, and this is hard to argue with. Intensely detailed and endlessly readable.
