Without doubt the best concise guide to the world's wines - however one cannot really call it a "Pocket Guide" anymore as it now has 336 pages. I used to buy the guide every year from the first one in 1977, but now plan every other year - the first I missed was 2014. Hugh Johnson is one of the most knowledgeable people in the world of wine, and for this guide draws on information from many regional specialists. If one wants to learn about reliable producers and interesting varietals from all over the world, this guide can take you from your current "comfort zone" to many other zones of enjoyment.

There is probably no better, handier, more succinct, more useful wine guide in the world, suitable for the beginner and indispensable to the expert. Covers virtually all wine growing areas and major winemakers in the world, and most significant minor winemakers as well as rating vintages, a brief history of many and much much more (grape types, regions and appellations, recommended serving temperatures for different wine types, etc, etc. Using efficient, logical conventions to indicate vintages, he shows (wine by wine) what is ready to drink and what not, what are his favorite vintages and what the winemaker's, big vintage years and other lesser years. If one could own only one wine book, this would be the one, without doubt.

Compact and condensed, this is a great travel companion to his terrific World Atlas of Wines. I own many wine books covering many regions in detail, but don't think one needs more than these two books to know the subject comprehensively.

Covers a lot of wines, but the details are limited. Heavy use of abbreviations and acronyms. Smallish print. Some informative details of the wineries listed are included as well as an orienting preface and finale. Is organized by country so looking up a wine by country of origin is easy. Hugh Johnson has been publishing these little gems for some time now. My guess is that there is a fair amount of repetition from year to year, but cannot confirm this. Note: the wines listed and considered to be Hugh's "favorites". In my opinion, being a "favorite" is a very subjective conclusion.

As a book, Hugh Johnson's annual Pocket Wine Book is a model of clarity. Wine buffs will find a long list of short but distinct entries, organized geographically and alphabetically within a country. There are also many tips on which wine goes with which food, the different ways to serve different wines, and descriptions of under appreciated and under publicized wines such as port and sherry.

Wine lovers know of the rivalry between wine critics Robert Parker and Hugh Johnson, and Johnson fans the flames with two pages poking fun at Parker's 100 point scale. To be frank it is hard not to agree that Johnson's system is better. A simple four star system to rate quality coupled with a highlight to show his own preferences. This strikes me as the correct level of precision for the topic.

However, this trivial dispute about how to rate wine overshadows the real disagreement between the two men, which is about how to make wine. Johnson believes in terroir (geography) and technology while Parker believes in traditional manufacture and grape varieties. Unfortunately, Johnson hardly ever acknowledges that particular dispute with Parker and completely lacks generosity to opposite viewpoints on these two issues. That I tend to see things Johnson's way does not make it less of a pity to me. The last failing costs the book one star. Or perhaps I should give it 96.5 points.

I get this every year. I have at least 30 years worth. I use this regularly when shopping and when buying wines on line.
A helpful feature is the 'what temp' chart. Most US folks serve reds too warm and whites too cold. Follow Mr. Johnson's temp guide and you will enjoy your wines more.

If you had to make the decision as to which wine book is the only one to own, I would definitely recommend the Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book. It is a very useful tool for all: experts and beguiners as well
I have been buying this book for over 20 years and during this time it has proven to be a very valuable source of information at restaurants, wine shops and wine tasting events. By the way, every year as soon as it is published I buy several copies to give to friends.
Several very good wine encyclopedias and many other wine books and publications sit in my book case, but this little gem is the only one that fits in your pocket and at the same time provides the information you need most of the time, a great plus!
The quick vintage reference charts (ratings) covers German, Italian, Spanish, Australian, Californian, New Zealander, S. African and French wines for up to 18 years and 5 years for Californian wines where vintage year is not as important as European wines. The section on wine and food pairing is most useful when entertainig. Most of the book is devoted to fairly detailed information on major wine producing countries, local producers, specific labels, best years and other very useful recommendations and comments.
It is a wonder how much information the author was able to pack into such a small package.
By all means this is a must have for all wine lovers. Enjoy!
