Hugh Johnson's Wine Companion (Third Edition) - Hugh JohnsonMitchell Beazley, 1992, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. A slightly dog-eared copy.
The enjoyment of wine is a very personal thing. Yet if you love it, and spend your life among other wine lovers, you will find a remarkable consensus about which wines have the power to really thrill and satisfy us. Prejudice and narrow-mindedness have no place; preferences are what it is all about. I have not tried to hide mine among the fabulous variety described in this book. To be a practical companion I have tried to give the essential information about each wine country and wine region you are likely to encounter or which is worth making an effort to know. I have shunned a great catalogue of the legislation that surrounds the wine business increasingly each year. It casts little light and does nothing to add to the pleasure of our subject - which is, after all, either a pleasure or a failure. 576pp. Size: 4to Crown (9¾" x 7½")
