The 10th edition of Wine Behind the Label has now been published with its most comprehensive analysis to date of wine producers, their vineyards and their wines.

The guide remains unique in that it features not only the most up to date profiles of individual wineries from all the main producing countries of the world. It also gives full ratings and scores for their wines.

As a result it has become known as “the sommelier’s best friend” and is widely used by sommeliers, and other wine professionals, both in their training, as research for professional exams, and as a day to day resource in their working lives.

Wine Behind the Label was once again published by joint editors, David Moore and the Late Neville Blech.

The 10th edition includes full profiles of 3,700 wineries, including 160 new entries. There are 6,000 wineries featured in total, with over 19,000 different wines rated and scored.

The guide has been updated to include all the latest wines and ratings from the 2015 northern hemisphere vintage and the 2016 vintage in the southern hemisphere.

Wine Behind The Label contains the most accurate information possible about wineries and their wines as it relies on a network of some of the biggest names in the international wine writing community to help compile many of the chapters, profiles and wine ratings. It is their work and expertise that has helped Wine Behind The Label become seen as THE reference book for professional and amateur wine lovers alike.

Contributors to the 10th edition include Jim Budd (Loire Valley) , Michael Edwards (Champagne and Burgundy), Professor Kathleen Burk (Germany, Austria and Virginia), Gary White (Portugal and South America), Ilona Thompson, (West Coast of the USA). It also includes work from previous contributors, including Sarah Ahmed, Maggie Rosen and Stuart George.

A key feature of the Wine Behind The Label guide is its full range of regional maps, with great detail of all the main wine producing areas of the world.

It also includes comprehensive glossaries for wine and viticulture terms along with a guide to all the main grape varieties.

Previous editions of the guide have received international acclaim. The most recent coming from the Organisation Internationale de la Vigne et du Vin which earlier this year gave it a special prize in its international wine awards for its contribution to wine education and knowledge.
