Published in 1994 to worldwide acclaim, the first edition of Jancis
Robinson's seminal volume immediately attained legendary status, winning
every major wine book award including the Glenfiddich and Julia Child/IACP
awards, as well as writer and woman of the year accolades for its
editor on both sides of the Atlantic. Combining meticulously-researched
fact with refreshing opinion and wit, The Oxford Companion to Wine
presents almost 4,000 entries on every wine-related topic imaginable,
from regions and grape varieties to the owners, connoisseurs, growers,
and tasters in wine through the ages; from viticulture and oenology to
the history of wine, from its
origins to the present day. The 187 esteemed contributors (including
over 50 new to this edition) range from internationally renowned
academics to some of the most famous wine writers and wine specialists
in the world. Now exhaustively updated, this fourth edition
incorporates the very latest international research to present over 350
new entries on topics ranging from additives and wine apps to WSET and 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, this Companion is unlike any
other wine book, offering an understanding of wine in all of its wider
contexts—notably historical, cultural, and scientific—and serving as a
truly companionable point of reference into which any wine-lover can dip
and browse. New to this editionComprehensively revised and updated throughout
