Details

Oz Clarke's atlas shows where, why and how vines are grown and wines are produced around the world. It illustrates and explains the vital connection between the land, the winemaker and his wine and shows how the landscape, as well as the skills of the winemaker, contribute to the extraordinary range of flavours found. Originally published in 1995, this new edition has been completely revised and updated with Oz Clarke's latest opinions about the world of wine. New and updated maps and colour photography detail the development of countries such as Chile, Argentina and Uruguay, for example, which have shot to prominence since the first edition. Section 1, The World of Wine, puts the wine regions in a global context, thematic maps examine the underlying factors that shape the landscape of wine and the factors that make up a terroir are examined in detail. Section 2, The Wines and Wine Regions of the World, is the core of the atlas. The 3-D maps of the world's most important and up-and-coming vineyard areas are accompanied by detailed key maps giving information on wine areas, classification systems, leading wine villages and top chateaux.
