    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…
