Published in 1994 on an international scale, the first edition of Jancis’ seminal volume immediately achieved legendary status, winning all major wine book awards including the Glenfiddich and Julia Child/IACP awards, as well as the writer and woman of the year praise for her editor-in-chief on both sides of the Atlantic.Combining meticulous and refreshing research, opinion and spirit, Oxford’s wine companion presents almost 4,000 entries on every imaginable wine subject, from regions and grape varieties to 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.More than 180 estimates vary from contributors (including 58 new for this edition) to internationally renowned academics to some of the world’s most famous wine writers and wine specialists.Now comprehensively updated, this fourth edition integrates international research later to present 300 new entries on topics ranging from additives and apps to WSET and Zelen wine apps.More than 60 percent of all entries have been revised; and statistics and useful lists are annexed, including a single list of the world’s registered appellations and their authorized grape varieties, as well as vineyard, wine production and consumption by country.Illustrated with nearly 30 updated maps of every major wine region in the world, many useful charts and diagrams and 16 superb color photographs, this companion is unlike any other wine book, offering an understanding of wine in all its broadest contexts, including historical, cultural and scientific – and acting as a truly sociable reference point in which any wine lover can dive and navigate.
