Revised and updated for 2007, the Oz Clarke Wine Atlas takes the reader on a 'grand tour' of the great wine regions of the world.
Fundamental to the understanding of wine is a sense of place. Knowing which country, which region, which hillside and which vineyard a wine comes from adds enormously to the pleasure of drinking it. With more than 75 spectacular, hand-painted panoramic maps accompanied by Oz's lively and opinionated prose, this highly acclaimed Atlas illustrates and explains the vital connections between the land and the wine.
Over 75 panoramic maps offering a grand aerial tour of the world's most famous vineyards
Revised and updated for 2007
Coverage of both traditional and up-and-coming wine regions
Over 160 colour photographs and more than 250 wine labels
`Clarke spins word pictures on what makes wine what it is with authority, color and clarity. To read his explanation of what makes each region special is to find yourself smelling the air and feeling the rocks under your feet. It's the next best thing to being there.' Wine Spectator
`The big book of the year, in every sense, is Oz Clarke's Wine Atlas, in which Oz Clarke takes a fresh, and given his reputation as a populist and simplifier, surprisingly academic look at the impact the physical situation of a vineyard has on the flavour of the wines made there.' Robert Joseph, The Sunday Telegraph
`Clarke has judged it just right... I've never read a wine book like it.' Mail on Sunday
Be sure to look for the publication date - the revision came out in 2007; the original in 2002. Wine regions are constantly being honed into more precise definition, so any work of this sort will have some information that is out of date by the time the book is released.
