Join Politics & Prose and Union Market for a conversation between Master of Wine Jancis Robinson and Washington Post Wine Columnist Dave McIntyre. |
One ticket includes hors d'oeuvres and wine for one. Copies of THE WORLD ATLAS OF WINE will be on sale at the event. Politics & Prose member discounts will be honored for the book.
The seventh edition will confirm the status of THE WORLD ATLAS OF WINE as the most essential and authoritative wine reference work. Reflecting the changing nature of the wine scene, the Atlas details developments in climate, technique and fashion as well as new regulations made over the last six years. A new Australian map highlights the importance of cool-climate regions as global warming takes effect, for example,while dynamic regions such as coastal Croatia, South Africa's Swartland and Ningxia in China are covered for the first time. The world's increasing appetite for wine is matched by a growing thirst for knowledge,which this book will amply satisfy.
Jancis Robinson's award-winning books VINES, GRAPES, and WINE and the hugely successful OXFORD COMPANION TO WINE, are landmarks in wine literature. Jancis is the Financial Times wine correspondent and is critically acclaimed as the "woman who makes the wine world gulp when she speaks" (USA Today) and "our favorite wine writer" (Playboy). Jancis was the first person outside the wine trade to qualify as a Master of Wine, in 1984. She was awarded an OBE in 2003 and the Officier de l'Ordre du Mérite Agricole in 2010 by the French Minister of Agriculture.
