What Wine Writers and Industry Say About The Book

"Looking for a good introductory wine book with an Australian emphasis? It would be difficult to go past The Australian Wine Guide, just released in it's fifth edition, revised and updated, complete with the newest GI (geographical indication) - NSW's New England- and winery recommendations for each region....This is not a guide in the usual meaning of the word, as in a book full of tasting notes. It's a general introduction to wine. Clive Hartley has produced an excellent book to suit wine students whether amateur or aspiring professional. It is comprehensive, easy to read, packed with information and takes a global view"

Huon Hooke,
Sydney Morning Herald

"Clive Hartley has come up with a valuable and consumer friendly book."

Jeff Collerson,
The Sun Herald

"The full colour book contains an immense amount of information, augmented by a strong photographic content and clear maps"

James Halliday,
The Australian

"Attractively laid out with more than 400 colour photos, labels, maps and drawings...... the book is well worth a look."

Winestate Magazine

"The Australian Wine Guide 5th Edition is a great read.
In terms of the level of knowledge that we want to achieve with the average team member, this is it!
We see this potentially as a handy tool to upgrade their wine knowledge in a rather short and structured period of time.
Congratulations, a great book!"

Koert Grobler, National Training Manager Vintage Cellars

"We have been using The Australian Wine Guide since the first edition. It is an extremely useful teaching tool. I recommend it to all wine teachers and students."
