James Halliday's Wine Atlas of Australia

James Halliday’s Wine Atlas of Australia

James Halliday’s Wine Atlas of Australia has recently been published in a new edition. This is a substantial book on all the wine regions of Australia. It is a must for anyone who plans to travel around the Australian wine regions but also a valuable reference for anyone who wants to know about Australian wines.

The book starts with some general information about Australia, its rules and regulations, the wine regions and all such customary introduction. It also has a rather unusual chapter on climate change that puts into question some of the received wisdom about climate change.

The majority of the book is dedicated to all the wine regions across this vast country. Each wine region is presented with an overview map as well as more detailed maps. There are even maps to the level of detail that will allow you to find exactly where the winery is when you are out driving among the Australian vineyards.

Most Australian wineries (if not all?) are presented both with some basic information about opening hours and other practical info and with a short profile about the vineyards and the wines. Halliday gives some short information about each winery, the history, the grape variety, the specialities and any wines that they may be particularly well-known for.

An excellent book for anyone interested in wines from Australia.
