‘The greatest wine book ever published’ - The Washington Post

‘a required reference for anyone who is serious about wine’The New York Times

Over 3,500 entries

First published in 1994 to worldwide acclaim, Jancis Robinson's seminal work immediately attained legendary status, winning every major wine book, as well as writer and woman of the year accolades for its editor on both sides of the Atlantic.

Combining meticulously-researched fact with refreshing opinion and wit, The Oxford Companion to Wine presents almost 4,000 entries on every wine-related topic imaginable, from regions and grape varieties to the owners, connoisseurs, growers, and tasters in wine through the ages; from viticulture and oenology to the history of wine, from its origins to the present day. More than 180 esteemed contributors (including over 50 new to this edition) range from internationally renowned academics to some of the most famous wine writers and wine specialists in the world.

A total of almost 2,500 entries have been significantly revised and 300 entries are completely new, with topics ranging from additives and wine apps to WSET and Zelen. The invaluable appendices have been fully updated—including a unique list of the world’s controlled appellations and their permitted grape varieties, as well as vineyard area, wine production and consumption by country. Maps of every important wine region in the world have been brought right up to date. As a special feature, this online edition includes audio material, offering guidance on the pronunciation of difficult terms, spoken by Jancis Robinson. Including almost 30 updated maps of every important wine region in the world, many useful charts and diagrams, 16 stunning colour photographs, and audio material to accompany key entries, this Companion is unlike any other wine reference work, offering an understanding of wine in all of its wider contexts—notably historical, cultural, and scientific—and serving as a truly companionable point of reference into which any wine-lover can enjoy immersing themselves.
