About Hugh Johnson

Hugh Johnson is the world's pre-eminent writer on wine. First published in 1977, Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book sells hundreds of thousands of copies a year. His winning formula of personal insight and critical appraisal of the world of wine, plus valuable vintage news and numerous wine recommendations has been often-imitated but never bettered. With the publication of his first book, Wine, Johnson established himself at the age of twenty-seven as the most refreshing and authoritative voice on the subject. During the past three decades he has written books that have become landmarks on the subject, including his classic The World Atlas of Wine, published in 2001 with Jancis Robinson in its fifth edition, his Wine Companion, published in 2003 in its fifth edition, and The Story of Wine.
