Welcome

Welcome to the Classic Wine Library, a series of books on wines and spirits by world-renowned experts.

Aimed at the serious wine enthusiast these books radiate the authors’ love of their subject. Each book in the series provides insights into the history, production and appreciation of the wine or spirit under review along with details of producers and tasting notes as well as more anecdotal information. Lists of vintages and shippers are also included where appropriate. Written with a light, readable touch by internationally acknowledged experts, the Classic Wine Library aims to entertain as well as educate with books that are fresh and zesty rather than cloying and crusted.
