Wines and Wine Regions of the World

By Oz Clarke

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Hardcover, 9780151009138, 336pp.

Publication Date: November 1, 2002


Fundamental to the understanding of wine is a sense of place. Knowing which country, which region, which vineyard, and even which hillside a wine comes from adds enormously to the pleasure of drinking it. Through its unique cartography--more than seventy-five spectacular, hand-painted panoramic maps--and Oz Clarke's lively and opinionated prose, this revolutionary atlas illustrates and explains the vital connections between the land, the winemaker, and the wine.
This edition has been completely revised, updated, and expanded, with a closer look at Napa and Sonoma, and new maps for Chile, Argentina, and elsewhere. No other book maps the world of wine as vividly, and no wine library is complete without Oz Clarke's New Wine Atlas.
