The Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book 2018 is out!
After many visits and countless tastings I’ve selected only 150 Portuguese full entries but managed to mention many more.
It includes recommendations of “best vintages” (for Barca Velha, for example) and “good values” (for many top reds, whites and Ports).
Only a dozen of Top Winery Scores (**** for grand, prestigious, expensive) for some of the best producers in Portugal.
Writing about Portuguese wine in the world’s bestselling wine guide has been of the most amazing and hardworking opportunities of my wine life.
Already tasting and writing for next year’s edition!
