Liz Sagues, Circle Update This is simply a supremely practical and astonishingly comprehensive reference book.


Woman & Home It's not always worth buying follow-on editions of classic books, but the fourth outing of the Oxford Companion to Wine contains lots of new material. If you're looking for a Christmas present for the wine lover in your life or just want to own a copy yourself, this is the most comprehensive wine tome on the market.


Georges Meekers, Times of Malta ... even more astonishing than the depth and breadth of revision is the degree of change thats happened in the wide world of wine in the last 10 years to which this edition is testimonial. Its a handy barometer on how the wine world is doing.


Anne Krebiehl, World of Fine Wine The revisions for this new edition have been admirably and impeccably thorough... There also is plenty of humor, a quality often lacking in reference works.


Stephen Brook, Decanter As well as a huge weight of entertainment, this wonderful book also manages to entertain and delight.


Henry Jeffreys, The Guardian Best Drink Books of 2015 Written with authority, and sometimes a humour so sly you have to do a double take, this [fourth edition] is still the best place to turn for answers to all your wine queries.

Andrew Jefford, Decanter magnificently comprehensive book ... If you're a wine novice, this one volume could teach you more about wine than any other; and if you're a full-time wine professional, you will still find much in here that you didn't know ... no editors could have brought us a volume closer to perfection than Jancis Robinson and Julia Harding have done


The World of Fine Wine Thousands of wine students across the globe will rejoice in this unparalleled work of reference and see it as an essential starting point for further study. As a source of well-honed, succinct definitions, the Companion is invaluable ... The revisions for this new edition have been admirably and impeccably thorough ... Even if your bookshelf already groans under the weight of the previous edition, purchasing this revision will be money well spent. In the case of
wine, as in so many other spheres, knowledge increases enjoyment exponentially. Quite apart from being such a splendid reference work, the b...
