    Charming, breezy, and, like the proverbial iceberg, resting on an even substantial bed of knowledge and experience Not encyclopedic, but rich nonetheless.

    Wow, Mr Johnson and his spider like eyebrows have produced another pillar of wine literature If you ve seen his BBC series on the history of wine, this book repeats some content, but elaborates on Each chapter has a chronological and geographical theme, masterfully researched and almost humorously written A must have for any serious wine lover, drinker, or professional.

    Hugh Johnson is the expert on wine Another of those amazing people who has published a major work while so very young This book is a lovely coffee table book but it would be a pity to not actually read it I highly recommend it for those who love history and wine.

    a comprehensive guide to the history of wine grape wine that is, they don t go much into sake or wines made from other products, though some are mentioned it goes through many countries and time periods and was overall very readable for a history text.

    Hugh Johnson s other books on wine are reliable and informative, serving as references, etc This one is a great read as well.

    Great book Loved the television series that went with it available only on DVD at the moment, I believe.
