Hugh Johnson - The Story of Wine (engl.)

‘Who better to supply us with our first comprehensive historical survey than the wine writer with the magic pen, Hugh Johnson?’ Jancis Robinson MW

Widely acclaimed as Hugh Johnson’s longest, most ambitious and enthralling book, The Story of Wine is a book of enormous richness, a biography of wine. Winner of every wine award in the UK and USA, writing it, according to Hugh, was like trying to get ‘a quart into a liqueur glass’. It is not just one story but a collection of many, scanning the wine world from Noah to Napa, from Pompeii to Pomerol, as illuminating to our understanding of civilization as it is to our appreciation of wine.

As historian Andrew Roberts says in his foreword: ‘The genius of The Story of Wine derives from the fact that it is an adventure story, full of mysteries, art and culture.’
