The definitive reference on New Zealand wines and wineries.
This visually stunning atlas provides the most comprehensive overview of the wine industry in New Zealand and is the only Wine Atlas devoted entirely to New Zealand wines and wine-making. This second edition of the Wine Atlas of New Zealand builds on the award-winning success of the first edition; the text has been fully updated with many more wineries introduced, there are brand new color photographs by John McDermott, as well as new maps throughout. This Atlas provides a comprehensive overview of the wine industry in New Zealand and contains information on grape varieties, regional variations in climate and soil, and winemaking techniques. Michael Cooper, one of New Zealand's premier wine writers, combines his knowledge with a lively writing style to capture the spirit of individual wine-makers and their wineries. Sumptuously illustrated with photography of vineyards and wine-makers, wine label art and regional maps, the Wine Atlas of New Zealand offers invaluable guidance and information to the connoisseur and amateur wine-lover alike.
