Description

Hugh Johnson has led the literature of wine in many new directions over a 60-year career. His classic The Story of Wine is his most enthralling and enduring work, winner of every wine award in the UK and USA. It tells with wit, scholarship and humour how wine became the global phenomenon it is today, varying from mass-produced plonk to rare bottles fetching many thousands. It ranges from Noah to Napa, Pompeii to Prohibition to Pomerol, gripping, anecdotal, personal, controversial and fun. This new edition includes Hughs view on the changes wine has seen in the past 30 years.In his Foreword the celebrated historian Andrew Roberts writes: The genius of The Story of Wine derives from the fact that it is emphatically not a dry-as-dust academic history there are dozens of those but an adventure story, full of mysteries, art and culture.
