Wine Grapes - A Complete Guide to 1368 Vine Varieties
By Jose Ouillamoz & Jancis Robinson
Wine Grapes is an indispensable book for every wine lover, from the world's greatest wine experts.
Where do wine grapes come from and how are they related to each other? What is the historical background of each grape variety? Where are they grown? What sort of wines do they make and, most importantly, what do they taste like?
Using the most cutting-edge DNA analysis to detail almost 1,400 distinct grape varieties, as well as myriad correct (and almost as many incorrect) synonyms, this book includes revelatory grape family trees and a rich variety of illustrations from Viala and Vermorel's seminal ampelography of century-old drawings.
Combining Jancis Robinson's world view, nose for good writing and good wines with Julia Harding's expertise and attention to detail plus Dr Vouillamoz's unique level of scholarship, Wine Grapes offers essential and original information in greater depth and breadth than has ever been available before. This is a book for wine students, wine experts and wine lovers everywhere.
