World Atlas of Wine makes Hall of Fame
The World Atlas of Wine has won a Hall of Fame award for being a fundamental reference book that changed wine tourism and publishing. Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson’s sixth edition took the prize in The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards, which this year judged thousands of books from 107 countries.
The new edition was called ‘a gem’ by the competition’s organisers and was said to be the book that ‘changed wine book publishing in 1971.’ The competition’s Edouard Cointreau told ThirtyFifty, ‘It is an extremely important book, indispensable in all wine libraries.’
The revised and updated book also took the Best in the World Award in the category Atlas-Wine Tourism at the presentation in London this month.
