2022 book reviews – the guide

Books from Books and Ink bookshop in Winchcombe

Tam has been hard at work reading wine books on your behalf to pick out those to add to your Christmas gift list.

Wine books in 2022 cover an eclectic spectrum of subjects, starting with the most classic of regions (Champagne, Jerez and Bordeaux) to the least likely (Zimbabwe), from the most topical science (regenerative agriculture and climate change) to a couple of long looks back at history. There are a clutch of memoirs, several authors taking very different angles on how to learn about and taste wine, some mouth-watering recipes and a dollop or two of philosophy. Something for everyone.

The links to book reviews below are listed with the most recently published at the top.
