After two hard years of updating and editing, Wine behind the label 9th edition is born! Editors David Moore and Neville Blech along with their team of contributors have provided the most comprehensive overhaul of the project in its extensive history. As well as the guide there will be much else to look forward to in the coming months.
It really did get to the stage where we were updating the updates, but we finally drew the line and the ebook version of the whole guide is now available at £29.00
There are now photos as well as maps in the 2,200 plus pages, which the guide has now grown to, with links to producers’ websites and the usual ebook search facilities
If this is too much to digest in one go – we are in the process of producing eBook / pdf versions of all regional and country guides which can be bought directly from the this site in the shop section below. We will also be making Kindle versions of regions or countries that will you will be able to buy through Amazon at £1.99
The most exciting new feature of the guide is the new award system we have devised. Those who have had previous editions of the guide will recall that we awarded in each edition a winemaker award for those star winemakers who have made the most impact on us during the period of research for that edition. In this 9th edition we have expanded our choices from about three to twelve. As well as the award winning winemakers of this edition, there are many producers that stand out for the quality of their current releases. We have opted with this edition to amend our approach with many more producers awarded with rosettes to reflect the quality of their work. These are our choices of cellars that continue to produce compelling releases. From large or diverse areas we have chosen names offering contrasting styles and wine growing approaches. Some are well-established stars, but there may be others challenging the established order or injecting new life into a region.
All Stellar Cellar award winners from this edition are evidenced by a single red rosette symbol preceding their entry in the guide. Those producers who received a Stellar Cellar award in previous editions have a mono rosette. Producers, who in our opinion, have been continuing to maintain exceptional standards or provide a regional benchmark over a number of years are evidenced by two green rosettes. All make wines that should be tried at least once.
There will, of course, be a number of new entries – producers who we have discovered to be worthy of the highest accolades but sadly also some entries which will have been deleted due to closure, death, merger, or just, in our opinion, not maintaining the standards which we had hitherto expected from them.
