I’ve managed to gather a few sample pages from the forthcoming WINE GRAPES by Jancis Robinson, Julia Harding and José Vouillamoz. The images below are taken from a downloadable file (hence the navigation buttons and so on), only I couldnt get it to download.

An indispensable book for every wine lover, from some of the world’s greatest wine experts

Where do wine grapes come from and how are they related to each other? What is the
historical background of each grape variety? Where are they grown? What sort of wines do they
make and, most importantly, what do they taste like?

Using the most cutting-edge DNA analysis and detailing almost 1,400 distinct grape varieties, as well as myriad correct (and highlighting almost as many incorrect) synonyms, this particularly beautiful book includes revelatory grape family trees, and a rich variety of illustrations from Viala and Vermorel’s seminal ampelography with century-old illustrations. Combining Jancis Robinson’s world view, nose for good writing and good wines with Julia Harding’s expertise and attention to detail plus Dr Vouillamoz’s unique level of scholarship, Wine Grapes offers essential and original information in greater depth and breadth than has ever been available before. A book for wine students, wine experts and wine lovers everywhere.

List price for the book (and it will be available as an ebook too) is £120.

Amazon.co.uk currently list Wine Grapes: A complete guide to 1,368 vine varieties at £75.
