It's The World Atlas of Wine as it has never been seen before!

The move away from more predictable international grapes and towards less familiar, local varieties is a noticeable trend. Wine that expresses its precise location is once more to the fore, meaning that an atlas that allows the reader to understand a region¹s geography is more necessary than ever.

A new Australian map highlights the importance of cool-climate regions as global warming takes effect, for example, while dynamic regions such as coastal Croatia, South Africa's Swartland, northern Virginia in the US and Ningxia in China are covered for the first time. A fresh new design, a bold new 'info graphic' illustration style and stunning new images make the visual appeal of the atlas as strong as its expert, accessible text. The world's increasing appetite for wine is matched by a growing thirst
for knowledge, which this book amply satisfies.


  • A great book - won't download to iPad Air

    By Michael Burke
    This is a very beautiful book. I have copies from the very first edition in hardbound copies. The ebook version is quite nice, and looks good on a retina display iPad Mini, but will not download properly -- that is not at all -- on an iPad Air. I have spoken to customer service about this, but so far there has been no resolution of the issue. It would be great if the maps were geo-referenced, that is showing ones location from the GPS signal. Maybe in another release.
  • Happy I purchased!

    I love this book! Very cool and great info!
  • 5 for contents, 2 for format

    By Alex the winelover
    No bad word for the contents of the book, but implementation is not satisfactory. There is no zoom in the book, so those who don't have 100% vision will have difficulty reading the text on iPad :-(
  • Crashing sample

    By Grigio N
    The sample I have downloaded keeps causing my iPad Air to crash. I wonder if others have had problems with the Atlas.
  • Great format

    By Daniel Hickey
    It took forever to download but it is a wonderful format easy to use.
