Hugh Johnson has been writing about wine for six decades, and his books have sold millions of copies worldwide. His winning formula of insight, critical appraisal and superbly evocative writing has been often-imitated but never bettered. Now, he looks back at his decades at the forefront of wine writing. Beginning in the 1960s, the book takes a chronological journey through Hugh Johnson's writing, featuring work published in a huge array of sources, including Decanter magazine, the Sunday Times and the World of Fine Wine.

It is about the fundamental shift in our understanding of wine, and our subsequent enjoyment of it.
