We are all too aware of how expensive our mammoth new book Wine Grapes – A complete guide to 1,368 vine varieties, including their origins and flavours is at its full price of £120/$175. So we are prepared to guide you towards ways of acquiring it for less (even if it means we earn a lower royalty rate), although we would urge you not to desert those brave and often wonderful independent book shops that still exist despite fierce competition from the online retailers.

Retailers change their prices all the time. We try to keep track of the latest prices in this article on JancisRobinson.com which we suggest you look at from time to tim.

You can get some idea of the extent of the book in Wine Grapes – a sneak preview.
