Wine Grapes


Jancis Robinson MW, a well-known wine writer has outdid herself with the book Wine Grapes. Along with her co-authors Julia Harding and Jose Vouillamoz she has written a  book impressive on all levels.


The first thing you notice when you pick up this tome is its weight, this is a substantial  book as it should be to contain detailed information on 1368 different grape varieties. Each entry contains information based on DNA for each grape variety and the variety’s origins based on scientific evidence and not legend that is so common in the wine world.
