9780198705383: The Oxford Companion to Wine (Oxford Companions)
Review:

Review from previous edition a required reference for anyone who is serious about wine ( The New York Times)

The greatest wine book ever published ( The Washington Post)

Jancis Robinson's brilliant and exhaustive tome on everything you ever wanted to know about the universe of wine ( from Sideways, the novel on which the award-winning screenplay was based)

It is hard to believe that Jancis Robinson could improve upon a work whose first edition was so universally lauded, but indeed she has ... The new edition is a huge compendium that covers practically everything you'd ever want to know about viticulture and winemaking ... The Oxford Companion to Wine is still the preeminent basic resource for wine lovers. ( Wine Enthusiast Magazine)

This A-Z guide covers all aspects of wine, from vine density to bottling ... Robert Parker, publisher of The Wine Advocate, calls this "the most encylopedic" book available. ( Brill's Content)

I can think of few better companions on a hazy Christmas afternoon ( Giles Kime, Sunday Telegraph)

I would like to be given Jancis Robinson's Oxford Companion to Wine ... it's one of those books you can keep going back to ( Sunday Express Magazine)

The wine world's most scholarly A to Z ( The Sunday Times, Joanna Simon)

the most impressive wine book ever published ... all wine enthusiasts would love to have a copy. ( The Sunday Tribune (Dublin))

a rich, enthusiastic celebration ... of the ancient people-centred arts of viticulture. ( Valentine Cunningham, The Observer)

Most ambitious, most respected writing project ever ... this is a massive overhaul. There are about 500 new entries, while more than half of the previous 3000 have been rewritten to varying degrees by Robinson and her team of contributors ... with the same diligent approach she adopted to the first edition, she either wrote or oversaw every word. ( Mary Dowey, The Irish Times (Dublin))

Always authoritative, she has revised about half of the 5000 entries to keep pace with the rapidly evolving wine world. ( Diana Gregory, The Independent)

The words "magisterial", "magnificent", and "indispensable", used more than once in a lifetime, begin to lose their potency, but both books deserve all these epithets and more. ( The Guardian, (The other book was The Oxford Companion to Food))

Deliciously definitive ( The Scotsman)

My advice is to buy the second edition ... a brilliant book ... by one of the great wine writers of our time ( The Observer)

an exhaustive and richly informed reference ( Newsday)

The Oxford Companion to Wine, edited by Jancis Robinson, is not just an extraordinarily well informed compendium of oenological data, it is a status symbol among wine 'cognoscenti', one of a handful of "must have" books for those who take their interest in wine that step further ... an oracular source 'par excellence' ... Information is presented in a typically academic, yet still warm and 'human' style. ( Harold Heckle, The Tablet)

Beautifully illustrated, with alphabetical contributions from over 80 worldwide experts, here is everything you ever wanted to know about the subject, and more. ( Christie Hickman. Midweek.)

Edited by a lively and distinguished wine writer, this is a welcome addition to the Oxford Companion series. ( Good Book Guide)

far and away the best book on drink published last year. ( Times)

... the most useful book on wine ever written; it is also one of the most enjoyable. ( Kathleen Burk, The Week)

Those readers interested enough in the subject to buy the first edition are pretty much compelled to buy all subsequent ones, for the knowledge encompassed in them changes not only rapidly, but also radically. ( Paul Levy, Times Literary Supplement)

No wine-lover's bookshelves should be without ( Jonathan Ray, Daily Telegraph)

The essential reference book ( David Baker, Financial Times)

Wine anoraks will want Jancis Robinson's revised, encyclopaedic The Oxford Companion to Wine. ( The Times)

Impressive Scholarship ( The Times)

Essential reference guide ( Daily Express)

From the Publisher:

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.
