World of Wine by Oz Clarke, £30, published by Pavilion 

Before Oz Clarke became known as a wine personality, he trod the boards with the Royal Shakespeare Company and sung in West End shows. He tends to bring this sense of fun and irreverence both to his TV appearances and the articles he writes on wine.

His latest home, World of Wine, takes the reader on a grand tour of the world’s key wine regions and the grapes that made them famous. From the slopes of the Côte Rôtie, where the grapes are black and sweet, to the snow-capped Andes in Chile, Oz is an entertaining and authoritative guide, imparting jokes and pearls of wisdom in equal measure.

Opinionated and lively, Clarke brings together the best of the New and the Old World in this ideal guide for those with a passion for wine and a thirst for knowledge. Packed full of maps and pretty vineyard pics, it will serve as an ideal study guide for WSET students.
