Johnson Hugh

The English wine author and wine critic Hugh Johnson (born 1939) is one of the most successful wine writers in the world. He is recognised as both a wine expert and a great stylist. He attended a boarding school in Rugby in the UK and studied English at King's College, Cambridge. He later worked for Vogue magazine, House & Garden. As successor to founder André Simon (1877-1970), he became editor of the magazine "Wine and Food" for several years and later General Secretary of the International Wine & Food Society. His first book "Wine" was published in 1966, and the "Great Wine Atlas" published in 1971 (subsequent edition "The New Wine Atlas") became his most successful work, in which all the wine-growing regions of the world are described in detail with maps.

For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.
