Key features include:

  • Author video
  • Interactive maps
  • Galleries of labels
  • Note-taking features

As Jancis Robinson commented, "Being able to zoom in on the detail of our wonderfully detailed maps really makes a difference – and the pictures are extra-sumptuous on an iPad. Now I understand why our picture editor was so particular."

Octopus Publisher, Denise Bates said, "Every new edition of the world’s bestselling wine atlas is a major event. For this 7th edition, we have not only the magnificent physical book, the result of many years of research on the part of Jancis and Hugh, but also the excitement of launching the Atlas in a digital format for the first time."
