Edited by award-winning wine writer Jancis Robinson, and featuring over 3000 alphabetically-listed entries, this reference covers all aspects of wine: historical, geographical, social, scientific, and cultural. As well as authoritative entries on wine-making, wine appreciation and the wine trade, the book offers both amateur and professional wine enthusiasts an enormous body of background information - from Dionysian revels in ancient Greece to Prohibition in 1920s America; from decanters, corkscrews and glasses to soil types, pruning and labelling.
