The seventh edition will confirm the status of The World Atlas of Wine as the most essential and authoritative wine
reference work. Reflecting the changing nature of the wine scene, the Atlas details developments in climate, technique
and fashion as well as new regulations made over the last six years. A new Australian map highlights the importance of
cool-climate regions as global warming takes effect, for example,while dynamic regions such as coastal Croatia, South
Africa's Swartland and Ningxia in China are covered for the first time. The world's increasing appetite for wine is
matched by a growing thirst for knowledge,which this book will amply satisfy.
