The world’s best-selling annual wine guide.
Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book is the essential reference book for everyone who buys wine – in shops, restaurants, or on the internet. Now in its 47th year of publication, it has no rival as the comprehensive, up-to-the-minute annual guide.
Providing clear succinct facts and commentary on the wines, growers and wine regions of the whole world, the book also reveals which vintages to buy, which to drink and which to cellar, which growers to look for and why. Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine 2024 gives clear information on grape varieties, local specialities and how to match food with wines that will bring out the best in both.
This latest edition of Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine includes a colour supplement on Chardonnay, the world’s most obliging grape, discussing everything from history and taste to texture, fashion and the role oak plays – and of course who makes the best Chardonnays around the world.
