Even the French admit that Jancis Robinson is the “undisputed mistress of the wine kingdom” (Le Figaro) and her book is a vintage memoir of a life in wine. Internationally renowned for her work in television and print, she is the editor of the best-selling Oxford Companion to Wine and has won more than two dozen major awards around the world. With the authority of Julia Child, the intelligence of Elizabeth David and the verve of MFK Fisher, Robinson takes us on a journey through the best cellars, the most beautiful vineyards and the best restaurants in the world. While exploring the world of grapes - from Bordeaux to Australia, from South Africa to California - she met a multitude of colorful people who loved wine, including Philippe de Rothschild, Julian Barnes, Francis Ford Coppola and Julio Gallo. With his humor, his revelations and his knowledge, Jancis Robinson has distilled twenty years of experience in the world of wine into an extremely entertaining work.

The author:

Among her nine wine books are the best-selling Oxford Companion to Wine (editor) and Jancis Robinson's Wine Course, which was the subject of a five-hour television series on PBS-TV in 1996. She lives in London .
