Most wine lovers have two things in common: They love to drink wine (of course), and they also enjoy reading about it.
We’ve been touting Karen MacNeill’s “The Wine Bible” ever since it was published several years ago, and it’s still the go-to source for information on our favorite beverage, presented in an accessible, entertaining style.
But just in case you took our advice and have already bought and read that book, here’s another: “Hugh Johnson’s The World Atlas of Wine.”
The latest edition boasts 48 extra pages, including 17 new color illustrations, 20 new maps, and – for the first time ever – double page spreads and full-page photos in the atlas section for maximum visual impact.
Coverage of the New World has been expanded with additions to the Australia and South America sections, and there even are some new Old World additions such as Toro in Spain, the Peleponnese in Greece, and Georgia.
The price of “The World Atlas of Wine” varies widely depending on where you buy it. It’s available in most larger bookstores and, of course, online from Amazon.
