Wine tourism has its own section ('There's never been a better time to visit English wine country,' declare the authors), as does a listing of key overseas distributors to reflect the growing importance of exports.

English wine has greatly changed in recent years. Royalty and heads of government drink it and pour it for foreign dignitaries, and it is sold to some thirty wine-drinking nations and even beats champagne in blind tasting challenges. Its main grape varieties are major international names and its makers are skilled professionals. From a largely amateur-instigated cottage industry it has become an increasingly serious, quality-led commercial proposition - one that regularly makes news at home and abroad. This book explains why and how that has come about, telling the story of winemaking in England from the Romans to the present era. Most of all, it celebrates the wine itself and the people who make it. Its pages take readers on a virtual tour of many of the UK's most significant vineyards, long established or comparatively new, in the southern heartland of vine growing, on the western and northern fringes or at points in between. The reader will meet men and women whose expertise, character and belief have created wines of which all Britons can be truly proud. Foreword by Oz Clarke. Superbly illustrated with colour photographs throughout.

This book is a basic introduction to growing grapes and aimed at the serious student in the wine trade, WSET Diploma student or Master of Wine candidate. It is also very useful for those thinking of setting up vineyards as it answers a lot of the basic questions. It has sold over 4,500 copies now and received LOTS of emails saying how helpful it has been. "Couldn't have become an MW without your book." This book is the expanded version of my WSET lecture on viticulture and is intended to give a general overall view of the subject, specifically for WSET Diploma and Master of Wine students. It is written in a non-scientific style, hopefully to convey to non-viticulturists the reasons for taking certain decisions in vineyard establishment and management. It sells very well and many of my MW students tell me how useful it is. It contains all the information you need to answer any Paper 1 question in the MW Exam.

Planting vineyards and producing grapes in what is still the world’s coolest vine-growing region has always been difficult. From the days of the early Christian monks to the era of the landscape gardener, when wealthy landowners planted vines, none of the early vine­yards were commercial prospects and the quality of the wine produced was such that mainland Europe’s winemakers were never in danger of losing Great Britain’s custom. Vine-growing in Britain only began in earnest after the Second World War, when Ray Brock conducted his grape-growing experiments and Edward Hyams promoted the idea of wine production in Britain through his books and public talks. These pioneers laid the groundwork for the establishment of vineyards from the 1950s onwards, most producing the German-style white wines popular at the time. However, changing tastes and an influx of quality wines from the New World led, at the end of the twentieth century, to a decline in the area planted to vine. The revival of the industry began in the early 2000s after Nyetimber’s consistently award-winning sparkling wines inspired many producers to start making Champagne-style wines. The classic Champagne varieties now take up more than 60 per cent of the vineyard area and there are well over 500 commercial wine producers and over 150 wineries in England and Wales. Here Skelton focuses on just 21, through which he paints a complete picture of the country’s wine industry. From small, new entrants onto the scene to the established big boys, he shows a range of approaches – to business, in the field and in the winery. From an industry insider of more than 40 years’ standing The wines of Great Britain is an indispensable guide for students, wine enthusiasts and aspiring wine producers.

The Roman war machine comprised land and naval forces. Although the former has been studied extensively, less has been written and understood about the naval forces of the Roman Empire. Britain’s navy, known as Classis Britannica until the mid-third century, was a strong fighting force in its own right. Its vessel types, personnel, tactics, roles and technology have never been studied in depth. Here in Sea Eagles of Empire Simon Elliott explores the story of this famed naval force, through the reigns of several Roman emperors, discussing the important role it played in military campaigns all across Europe and in policing the waters of the Roman Empire in Britain.

Although the environmental and physical effects of climate change have long been recognised, little attention has been given to the profound negative impact on mental health. Leslie Davenport presents comprehensive theory, strategies and resources for addressing key clinical themes specific to the psychological impact of climate change. She explores the psychological underpinnings that have contributed to the current global crisis, and offers robust therapeutic interventions for dealing with anxiety, stress, depression, trauma and other clinical mental health conditions resulting from environmental damage and disaster. She emphasizes the importance of developing resilience and shows how to utilise the many benefits of guided imagery and mindful presence techniques, and carry out interventions that draw on expert research into ecopsychology, wisdom traditions, earth-based indigenous practices and positive psychology. The strategies in this book will cultivate transformative, person-centred ways of being, resulting in regenerative lifestyles that benefit both the individual and the planet.
