Revised and updated for the first time since 2007, this 400-page survey of the world’s wine regions includes more than 200 maps for areas as far-flung as Virginia and Japan’s Yamanashi prefecture, as well as close-up maps of leading domains such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape at scales nearly as small as 1 inch to the half mile. Climate change issues are reflected throughout the book, along with advances in production technology, and the consequences of the burgeoning Asian market for fine wines. A major work, useful for reference, and fun just to browse.
