‘A thorough guide to just about everything worth drinking.’ The Times

‘Space for only one wine book in your life? This is it.’ Howard G. Goldberg, The New York Times


Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book is the essential reference book for everyone who buys wine – in shops, restaurants, or on the internet. Now in its 48th year of publication, it has no rival as the comprehensive, up-to-the-minute annual guide to wine.

Providing clear succinct facts and commentary on the wines, growers and wine regions of the whole world, the book also reveals which vintages to buy, which to drink and which to cellar, as well as the best growers to look for and why. Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book 2025 gives clear information on grape varieties, local specialities and how to match food with wines that will bring out the best in both.

This latest edition of Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book includes a colour supplement on Pinot Noir, the world’s most highly prized grape, discussing everything from variety and food pairings, to Pinot Noir sparkling wines and how climate change has affected the production of this grape.
