New book, e-book and database on what winegrape varieties are grown where in the world

“This new database charts exactly what varieties are grown in which regions around the world. Since the data sets are based on two broad census periods, in 2000 and 2010, readers can also follow major planting trends around the world during the first decade of this new century. This colossal trawl makes it the perfect complement to last year’s publication of Wine Grapes by the doughty Robinson, Harding and Vouillamoz.”
