Publisher Comments:

The original - and the best- pocket guide to wine.

Now in its 35th edition and with over 11 million copies sold worldwide, Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book 2012 is still the number one pocket wine guide that appeals to both wine lovers and professionals.

No other guide so successfully distills the world of wine into such a handy, eloquent gem of a package, and Hugh's winning formula of personal insight and critical appraisal has ensured this guide is the only reference trusted by wine enthusiasts, investors and collectors alike.

As always the pocket wine book is packed with invaluable features and for 2012 it has been completely revised and updated, with fresh introductions and new sidebar features for every country. This year's edition boasts up-to-date news on more than 6,000 wines, growers and regions plus invaluable vintage information from expert contributors around the world.

Whether you're purchasing a bottle at a shop, ordering wine in a restaurant, stocking a cellar, or investing in a vintage, Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book 2012 is the one resource you cannot do without.

Book News Annotation:
