Genau drei Jahrzehnte sind vergangen, seit Hugh Johnsons Weinatlas zum ersten Mal erschien und die Kritiker in aller Welt zu Beifallsstürmen wie hinriss. Das Buch wurde in ein Dutzend Sprachen übersetzt und millionenfach verkauft. Die nun vorliegende und bereits lang ersehnte fünfte Ausgabe hat Hugh Johnson gemeinsam mit der Weinexpertin und Autorin von Weltruf Jancis Robinson verfasst. Robinson hat einen Großteil der Texte neu geschrieben und damit den großen Veränderungen und Entwicklungen in der Weinwelt seit der letzten Ausgabe 1994 Rechnung getragen. Die wichtigste Neuerung sind die vollständig neu erstellten Karten, die seit der ersten Ausgabe das Rückgrat dieses Atlas bilden und ihn zum nach wie vor konkurrenzlosen Referenzwerk machen: "Lively, intelligent writing combined with lush photography und unmatched technical accuracy make this an enjoyable read for the novice and a must have for the accomplished oenophile" (Wine Enthusiast über die englische Originalausgabe).
