The Essential Guide to English Wine
Publisher: The International Wine & Food Society
This pocket-sized monograph covers key aspects of English wine – from the history to modern developments via climate change, geology, grape varieties, viticulture, winemaking, recent vintages – while the core of the book profiles the country's leading producers. Wine tourism has its own section ('There's never been a better time to visit English wine country,' declare the authors), as does a listing of key overseas distributors to reflect the growing importance of exports. A map of the main wine regions, designed by Dr Alistair Nesbitt of Climate Wine Consulting, sits at the heart of the publication.
