    Surprised not to see Wine Grapes by Robinson, Harding and Vouillamoz atop this list. Wine Report was a fabulously useful publication, but since it was in essence an annual update and given that it’s not been published since 2009 it probably doesn’t deserve a place here.

    I have more have more than 100 books on wine and I always tell people if you’re only going to buy one wine book, buy “The Wine Bible” by Karen McNeil. Very surprised you didn’t include it…

  3. I do have wine wise at home which we often read whenever we go to bed with my husband. But the rest are all interesting will definitely check them out the next time we head to the bookstore.
