Fundamental to the understanding of wine is a sense of place. Knowing which country, which region, which hillside and which vineyard a wine comes from adds enormously to the pleasure of drinking it. With more than 75 spectacular, hand-painted panoramic maps accompanied by Oz’s lively and opinionated prose, this highly acclaimed Atlas illustrates and explains the vital connections between the land and the wine.
‘To read [Clarke’s] explanation of what makes each region special is to find yourself smelling the air and feeling the rocks under your feet. It’s the next best thing to being there.’
‘I admire the energy which comes from every page, the enormous feeling of discovery which Clarke always generates, and which makes him such a fine advocate for wine.’
