About the Author

Jancis Robinson has been called "the most respected wine critic and journalist in the world" by Decanter magazine. She is the author/editor of dozens of wine books, including WineGrapes (Allen Lane/HarperCollins), The Oxford Companion to Wine (OUP), and The World Atlas of Wine (Mitchell Beazley). She lives in London.

José Vouillamoz worked with the groundbreaking team of grape geneticists at the University of California, Davis, and is a botanist and grape expert with an international reputation.

Julia Harding, a Master of Wine, linguist, and fastidious editor, is Jancis Robinson's full-time assistant and associate palate. In this book, she has gathered the most up-to-date statistics about wine-grape plantings in every corner of the planet as well as unearthing recommended wine producers for almost every grape variety.
