Free wine books


Hi all,
New to the community, but been a Society member for more than 20 years.
I’m about to move house and am clearing out some wine books I no longer need.
Before I take them to the local charity shop, I was wondering if anyone would like them for free?
Only downside is that you would need to pick them up from me in London SW12 before 14th Dec.
List below. LMK if interested.

Brunello to Zibibbo/Nicolas Belfrage

German Wines/Ian Jamieson

Wines of the Rhone/J Livingstone-Learmonth

The Accidental Connoisseur/Lawrence Osborne

What is biodynamic wine?/Nicolas Joly

Biodynamic wine demystified/Nicolas Joly

Sotheby’s Guide to classic wines & their labels

Jancis Robinson’s Wine Course

Chateau Monty/Monty Waldin

Tuscany & its wines/Hugh Johnson

Corkscrews for collectors/Watney & Babbidge

Gambero Rosso Italian Wines 2018

Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book 2018

Wine & Food Guide To the Loire/Jacqueline Friedrich

Robert Parker’s Wine Buyers Guide 3rd/4th/5th editions

The Finest wines of Tuscany/Belfrage

The Finest wines of Champagne/M.Edwards

The art & science of wine/Halliday & Johnson

Wine science/Jamie Goode

The Red Wine Companion/Spence

The White Wine Companion/Spence


Very tempting. I would be very interested in the first three certainly. I can’t get down to you this week (I work in central London), but Tuesday (10th) might work, depending on what time I have to be back home.

Does after work suit you? Send me a private message if you think we might be able to arrange something.
