The 2019 edition of the Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book is coming out on the 6th of September.
This is my second time contributing to the Pocket Wine Book after last year’s inaugural edition. I’m very proud to have the opportunity to put it out there for the world to discover the addictive diversity of Portuguese wine. The Portuguese chapter is the result of a year of visits, tastings and many notes. This edition is full of new entries, new ratings and even more tips on what to drink.
Easiest place to get one is on Amazon.
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 42nd year of publication, it has no rival as the comprehensive, up-to-the-minute annual guide.
Hugh Johnson provides clear succinct facts and commentary on the wines, growers and wine regions of the whole world. He reveals which vintages to buy, which to drink and which to cellar, which growers to look for and why. Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book gives clear information on grape varieties, local specialities and how to match food with wines that will bring out the best in both. This new edition also contains a special supplement on Organic, Natural and Biodynamic wines.
