Review:
Otherwise known as the biggest little wine book in the World--this is the 21st edition of Hugh Johnson's brilliant mini-encyclopaedia. There is a veritable banquet of up-to-the-minute information on almost everything to do with wine--the countries and wineries which produce it; the food to go with it; the words to describe it; and the vintages to look out for. References include grape varieties from Albariño to Zinfandel and food from frankfurters to fois gras. And there's some tongue-in-cheek stuff about scoring wines. He writes about the peculiar, American, 100-point scale which is based on the US school system in which 50 = 0. The Johnson system is much simpler. The minimum score is one sniff. The score increases to a sip and on further to a bottle (this means thorough satisfaction). The logical top score is, of course, the whole vineyard.

Hugh Johnson is a genial character, full of knowledge but never a know-all. His enthusiasm shines through even in this little book. There can be no more knowledgeable companion to experiment with in 1999. The next step, and a real treat for anyone interested in the subject is Johnson's ultimate, glossy wine book The World Atlas of Wine. --Nick Tarayan

About the Author:

Hugh Johnson is the world's pre-eminent writer on wine. First published in 1977, his Pocket Wine Book sells hundreds of thousands of copies a year. His winning formula of insight, critical appraisal of the world of wine, plus valuable vintage news and wine recommendations has been often-imitated but never bettered.

With the publication of his first book, Wine, Johnson established himself at the age of twenty-seven as the most refreshing and authoritative voice on the subject. During the past four decades he has written books that have become landmarks on the subject, including his classic The World Atlas of Wine, co-authored with Jancis Robinson, his Wine Companion, first published in 2003, The Story of Wine and Hugh Johnson on Wine. In his spare time he writes about gardening from his home in London.
