Stevenson Tom

The British wine author Tom Stevenson (*1951) is considered one of the best specialist authors, who is attested to shine in his non-fiction books with "clear, sparkling prose". His first contributions were published in the wine journals Decanter and Wine & Spirit International in the 1970s, and even then he was particularly interested in champagne and sparkling wines. He wrote more than 20 books, which have been translated into 25 languages. The work "Champagne", published in 1965, was the first wine book to receive four literary awards. The "Christie's World Encyclopedia of Champagne & Sparkling Wine" published in 1998 with a foreword by Michael Broadbent is one of the best ten wine books ever. In it, sparkling wine producers from all over the world and their products are evaluated with a 100-point system. What is unusual is that the entire scale of 100 points is used (usually starting at 50).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
