Every year this little book is the best new book printed that covers the whole world of wine. This edition follows in the footsteps of previous editions and is better than ever. Want to know the whole picture of wine in todays world? There is no better source of info than this book.
I have been buying these annuals for decades. I give them as gifts at birthdays and Christmas. I often add a bottle of wine to the gift. Everyone loves them and they look forward to receiving one the next year. They in turn buy them and give them a gifts. My one gift them turns into dozens of more copies being gifted. Great guide!
I get this every year. I have at least 30 years worth. I use this regularly when shopping and when buying wines on line.A helpful feature is the 'what temp' chart. Most US folks serve reds too warm and whites too cold. Follow Mr. Johnson's temp guide and you will enjoy your wines more.
Really useful book. It goes country by country and lists the many growers and marks them. I have used it a few times before going out to eat to have a look at a wine list on-line, checking it against this book and deciding my wine before I even leave the house. This has saved me money and pointed me towards some good discoveries. It is the size of an oversize pocket diary so technically you could carry it with you, but it is small and in restaurant lighting you may be squinting to read the detail, best to plan ahead.There is more to this than a country by country guide but what differentiates it is actually the country/winery writes ups, the rest is fairly standard stuff, but I have found the write ups invaluable
I recommend this to new wine learners, as it's a condense guide to learning & choosing wine with minimal tasting disappointments. It's served me well for the last 20 years.Henry JordanBarbados
I use this lovely, informative and ever growing book for my best Friends to give them the pleasure to "knowingly" drink a good bootle of wine wherever they are at home. None of my Friends has ever had a critical remark in roughly 20 years.
I buy it from 1987. It became around 2 times of the thickness of an original book. I dropped in at the bookstore at every trip to the United States before not the and bought it because there was a bookstore at the airport when it was SFO. Because it is update every year, the contents hardly change, but, from around 2000 when garage wine of Bordeaux has begun to become the topic, the publication of the wine of the kind feels like having begun. Because, as is expected, in comparison with R parka it is a British owner, an important point is put for the evaluation of classic wine. How many years can you update the back? I want you to be well forever.
After having bought more than 20 HJPWBs, I tried the 2016 Kindle version. Contents useful as in each of the previous volumes. Book or Kindle, I will make my decision next year.
