A brilliant book, meticulously researched and an essential guide for Ireland’s wine shoppers. This year it’s benefited hugely from the editorship of John Wilson, a respected wine trade figure, critic and, of course, latterly a regular columnist in this magazine. John’s involvement has brought gravitas, keener focus and enhanced status to an already essential reference work. The guide also benefits from a dedicated tasting panel. The new section on value wines alone should allow you to recoup the cost of the book. All-in-all, highly recommended.
