Experience: The World of Fine Wine
An Integral Part of the Connoisseur's Library
*Special* Subscription Rates for Crush Customers
"When your brain grows numb reading endless tasting notes and point-scores...it's more than refreshing to open a copy of The World Of Fine Wine and be reminded why you care in the first place. I don't know how I ever did without it."
Terry Theise, Importer
The World of Fine Wine is not just a "magazine," at least not in any conceivable, casual, everyday sense of the word.
Truly, in every qualitative aspect, from the powerhouse lineup of writers (regulars include Hugh Johnson, Andrew Jefford, Allen Meadows, Jancis Robinson and David Schildknecht) to the stunning production value (beautiful photography, top quality paper), it's more appropriate to think of this journal as a book - a reference book - published four times a year.
Today I'm thrilled to extend to the Crush Crew, on behalf of The World of Fine Wine, a special subscription rate that essentially gives you up to 2 free copies. Click here for all the details and to subscribe. There is no commitment, you can cancel any time for a refund, though I sincerely believe that the wine lover that reads this magazine is not likely to put it down.
While the editors of The World of Fine Wine do an incredible job of following/reflecting the trends of the wine market, the issues are so much more than superficially topical and these are volumes we read (cover-to-cover) before putting them on the bookshelf as critical reference pieces. Just a few of the tastings we read with enthusiasm: "Dujac, Roumier and Rousseau 1985-2004," "Dom Pérignon 1959-1996," and "Domaine Jean-Louis Chave 1974-2005."
Yet it must be stated that this is a magazine as much for the wine geek as for the blue chip collector. "Fine Wine" is not simply a veiled way of saying "expensive wine" - indeed the magazine provides extensive coverage on Germany and Austria, Sherry, Sagrantino and more. The upcoming issue (due out in December) is eagerly awaited by Joe and Stephen - coverage of Beaujolais from Champagne guru Peter Liem.
Reading is believing, and aside from the special subscription rates, The World of Fine Wine has also been good enough to provide three free articles, available for download here:
1) "2007 Burgundy" with tasting notes covering Angerville, Dauvissat, Fèvre, Bouchard, Chevillon, Fourrier, Gouges, Mugneret-Gibourg, Potel, Rousseau and more.
2) "Single-Vineyard Champagne"
3) "The Demise of the Super-Tuscan"
Michael Steinberg calls the WOFW "The best English-language wine journal around." As far as I'm concerned, this is required reading. Please find all the details below.

Special Subscription Offer
The One Year+ Offer:
Special 5 Issues for the Price of 4!
Special Crush Price: $169.00
That's $33.80 a volume, less expensive than one bottle of Veuve Clicquot "Yellow Label," less than a single bottle of most Village Burgundies. And these issues are built to last longer than a Conterno Monfortino magnum.
The Two Year+ Offer:
10 Issues for the Price of 8!
Special Crush Price: $300.00
That's $30 a volume, about the price of a simple "Bourgogne Rouge" or a Cru Beaujolais, yet these wine references will still be relevant even after your 2005 Zilliken Saarburger Rausch TBA magnum has given up the ghost.
