Also our editor Ruth Arnold has been a key contributor in the making.We are grateful to Dr Andrew Pirie for sharing his groundbreaking world map on suitable climates for sparkling winemaking.Also, gratitude is in order for Dr Tony Jordan, who, during the process of writing this edition and in between the editions, has continuously made himself available for consultation on numerous matters ranging from viticulture and vinification to sparkling winemaking around the world.Any technical errors are entirely of our own making, not Tony's!
