Customer review of free book from the Amazon Vine Programme
I am reviewing the book, Hugh Johnson on Wine: Good Bits from 55 Years of Scribbling, by none other than Hugh Johnson. Here are my thoughts:
^^ Detailed scribblings covering 55 years of wine expert Hugh John’s delectable career.
^^ Includes lots of articles full of information about the wine industry and the changes over the years.
^^ Hugh Johnson also shares a lot about his own life during these years, which I think adds to the beauty of this book.
^^ I loved discovering what makes a good wine and why that is so. This is such an in depth book, but at the same time it’s written in a genuine, chatty format that makes it both informative and fun to read.
^^ Sprinkled through are delightful drawings that add to this book’s charm.
^^ Would make a lovely gift for wine fans, and a great coffee table book.
Hugh Johnson certainly knows his wine, and with 55 Years of Scribbling this book is full to the brim with my favourite tipple. Definitely a must for a wine-tasting connoisseur and a Hugh Johnson fan.
