Pressestimmen

...the most useful book on wine ever written; it is also one of the most enjoyable. Kathleen Burk, The Week Those readers interested enough in the subject to buy the first edition are pretty much compelled to buy all subsequent ones, for the knowledge encompassed in them changes not only rapidly, but also radically. Paul Levy, Times Literary Supplement No wine-lover's bookshelves should be without Jonathan Ray, Daily Telegraph The essential reference book David Baker, Financial Times Wine anoraks will want Jancis Robinson's revised, encyclopaedic The Oxford Companion to Wine. The Times, Impressive Scholarship The Times Essential reference guide Daily Express

Synopsis

Published in 1994 to worldwide acclaim, the first edition of Jancis Robinson's seminal volume immediately attained legendary status, winning every major wine book award including the Glenfiddich and Julia Child/IACP awards, as well as writer and woman of the year accolades for its editor on both sides of the Atlantic. Combining meticulously-researched fact with refreshing opinion and wit, The Oxford Companion to Wine presents almost 4,000 entries on every wine-related topic imaginable, from regions and grape varieties to the owners, connoisseurs, growers, and tasters in wine through the ages; from viticulture and oenology to the history of wine, from its origins to the present day. Now exhaustively updated, this third edition incorporates the very latest international research to present almost 400 new entries on topics ranging from globalization and the politics of wine to brands, precision viticulture, and co-fermentation.

Hundreds of entries have undergone major revision, among them yeast, barrel alternatives, climate change, and virtually all wine regions; and useful lists and statistics are appended, including controlled appellations and their permitted grape varieties, and wine production and consumption by country. Illustrated with maps of every important wine region in the world, useful charts and diagrams, and stunning colour photographs, this Companion is unlike any other wine book, offering an understanding of wine in all of its wider contexts - notably historical, cultural, and scientific - and serving as a truly companionable point of reference into which any wine-lover can dip and browse.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book certainly contains every aspect and detail about wine for the (prospective) expert. But it has to be underlined that this is not a guide, but a dictionary-style encyclopedia, with thousands of entries in alphabetic order and no thematic organization. For people who are used to Wikipedia and linking of terms, learning more about a certain grape can become quite painstaking.

The Oxford Companion to Wine is an excellent book that I recommend to all my Students.

It goes into sufficient detail but never does it get boring or complicated.

It is also very helpful if you need to quickly look up some information about a grape variety or grape growing area.

Indispensable! 1. November 2006
Von Jennifer D. Frank - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
No wine lovers' library is complete without the Oxford Companion to Wine. This is THE reference book for everything wine, quite literally from A to Z. Whether you are a wine novice looking to know more about a particular grape variety or wine region or an expert searching for information on vinification or the history of cork, you will find it -- quickly and easily -- in this book. Given that the book resembles and is organized like an encyclopedia, the annotations for each subject are written in a compelling manner. This is not a coffee table book. This is a book you will use again and again.

Impressive Tome 11. Dezember 2010
Von G. Nelson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have both this book and the Word Atlas of Wine (WAW). While both are very detailed, I find myself reading this first because of its more charming, easier-to-read style. After I've got a good understanding on a subject, I'll then mosey on over to the WAW to satisfy my wine nerdiness. I find that these two books compliment each other. For instance, I appreciate the WAW's detailed maps more after I've read the Oxford Companion's written description of a particular terroir. Either book would meet virtually everyone's needs and wants though.

Perfect for, well, looking up anything about wine 18. Februar 2007
Von R.Robot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Oxford is basically the bible for wine. Very thorough and a great reference. This is *the* book. Just get it.

One comment about the reviewer who said, "A lot of money for a text book that is not a consumer's guide" - my reply? Duh. Look what you wrote - It's an encyclopedia, not one of the multitudes of consumer guides. Know what you are talking about before writing a review. As far as consumer guides, Oz Clark and Robert Parker both produce consumer/buying guides where you can look specific producers.

THE OXFORD COMPANION TO WINE, 3rd Edition: The Most Complete Wine Knowledge Source. 25. April 2014
Von C.V. May - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In vino veritas

Jancis Robinson, OBE, Master of Wine and a Briton, is the author of this huge wine reference volume. She, and many other wine experts such as Hugh Johnson, Robert Parker and Kevin Zraly, have devoted their entire lives to wine, the study of everything wine, and the writing about wine. This tome of hers is one of many fine wine books written by Ms. Robinson. My thanks and deserving admiration go to her. I am a part-time oenophile and have too many other interests to study only wine. On the other hand, I do want to know much about wine, balanced with proportion.

The best recommendation and endorsement for The Oxford Companion to Wine, 3rd Edition, published by the Oxford University Press, comes from the James Beard Foundation. Their list of the twenty best cooking/wine books includes this book. Go to "The James Beard Foundation, 20 Best Cookbooks," one of the most highly respected sources of cooking and wine information in the world. Also, go to: Amazon.com: 20 Essential Cookbooks

I find fascination in the history of wine, grape varieties, the various estates and domains, wine grape growing, vinification, the history of bottles and corks, wine tasting, wine cellaring, the wine regions of the world, pairing wine with food, and much, much more. I cannot find anything that Jancis Robinson has overlooked when it comes to wine. Her work is a cure for the fear of wine.

My Windows on the World wine course book, by Kevin Zraly, was my first wine book. Highly recommended as a starter book, excellent overview of wine and fun to read. But I eventually found that I wanted more detailed information to answer my wine questions, and to find answers to wine-related questions that would never have occurred to me to ask in the first place.

Yes, the book is thick, detailed, and encyclopedic, but Ms. Robinson has a charming, easy to read, typically British understated and droll writing style...hinting subtle humor lurks in her pages. Her taste is impeccable. I love browsing and digesting her thousands of entries. There are simpler books on wine, but why have access to less information? I have a small library of the best wine books out there and the Oxford Companion, 3rd Edition, is the best reference source available. If you feel a bit bored I can assure you that this book will solve the problem IF you love wine. IF you do love wine then this book is a MUST buy. Read it, and I do so with a glass of wine in hand. Next on my Jancis Robinson reading list will be her American Wine.

Good, but not perfect 18. Mai 2007
Von Tommy W. Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
It's a great encyclopedia, but here's a couple of suggestions on how to make it even better...

1) Next to each entry, put in phonetics or some sort of pronunciation guide. People would like to sound intelligent when they speak too, not just when they read.

2) Wine Region maps should be colored, not just black & white.

3) Grape varieties should have nice colored pictures next to them.
