We are all too aware of how expensive our mammoth book Wine Grapes – A complete guide to 1,368 vine varieties, including their origins and flavours is at its full original cover 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.
UK residents who wish to buy at the keenest price and have this very heavy book delivered to their door are recommended to order from Amazon.co.uk or Hive.
In Europe the book and the Kindle are available from Amazon.fr in France, Amazon.de in Germany, Amazon.it in Italy and Amazon.es in Spain.
US residents can order the US edition (which differs from the UK one only in its darker cover and slipcase) from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble or IndieBound.
Canadian residents can order from Amazon.ca.
Anyone outside the UK may be best advised to order from the UK-based Book Depository, which offers free delivery worldwide at prices which vary but have so far been between £70 and £80.
