    DescriptionThis luxury box-set includes two of the world's most successful and best-selling wine books by the two foremost wine writers on the subject. The World Atlas of Wine commands the position as the indispensable wine book for novice and expert alike thanks to its exceptional maps, the quality of its prose, and its well-timed revisions. Fifteen years ago Hugh Johnson wrote what is critically considered to be his "masterpiece" and a timeless classic of wine literature The Story of Wine. It has been heralded as one of the most comprehensive and certainly one of the most enjoyable books on wine in any language.
