Moving from food to drinks, we are spoilt for choice with the superb range of Portuguese wines on offer. It is nevertheless great to have a reference book of the quality of the new Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia by Tom Stevenson, three-time Wine Writer of the Year.

He has updated and enriched his award-winning visual guide to the wines of the world, which has been described as “a heroic piece of work … an indispensable book which should be part of any serious wine lover’s library” (Sunday Times).

From the Old World to the New, including all the emerging regions, pick up the latest on all the wine-producing areas across the globe; the book covers every appellation, official and unofficial, and all the best producers.

Also to hand is practical advice on tasting, storing and serving as well as expert tips on choosing food to accompany wine. This is a tantalising read which will appeal to any serious wine drinker’s palate. Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia is out in hardback, priced at 54.50 euros.
