Journey Through Wine: An Atlas Summary

Journey Through Wine: An Atlas: 56 Countries, 100 Maps, 8000 Years of History by Adrien Grant Smith Bianchi

Welcome to your tour of the wine-growing world. Wine has rolled its barrel from the shores of the Black Sea to the mountains of the Andes, following humans and their dreams. But just how did a Pyrenean grape variety end up in Uruguay? And by what means were grapevines able to reach Japan?

This book goes back through time to retrace the grape's conquest of the world, stopping in each wine-making country, from the oldest (Georgia) to the most recent (Poland), to discover wines past and present, while looking to future producers in places such as Tahiti and Sweden.

The atlas works on a spread-by-spread basis. For each region there is a large-scale, specially drawn map, an overview of the area's history of wine production and a list of its main grape varieties, along with details of its world ranking in production volume, annual production, proportion of black and white grapes produced, month of the grape harvest, date of first viticulture (and which culture brought it) and suggestions of appelations to taste. The end section contains further statistics and information on grape varieties, characteristics and terroirs.

This large-scale publication, encompassing 56 countries, 100 maps and 8,000 years of wine history, is a tour de force in wine publishing.

About Adrien Grant Smith Bianchi

Jules Gaubert-Turpin and Adrien Grant Smith Bianchi are loversof wine and cartography. When they first became interested in oenology, they noticed a lack of up-to-date and beautiful guides. With Jules writing the words and Adrien drawing the maps, the duo set themselves the challenge of joining their passions and embarked on creating a new way of approaching wine and its terroirs. A Journey Through Wine is the result.
