The World of Fine Wine, and the publishers Progressive Media International, have worked with digital content specialists Exact Editions to digitise the archive, making the resource readily available to print and digital subscribers alike. The extensive archive makes for a valuable resource; available for universities, corporations and other organisations, who can take out a specialist network subscription utilising Exact Editions IP authentication technology, say the company.
First launched in 2004, The World of Fine Wine has for over a decade delivered high quality, authoritative editorial content for the global wine aficionado. From the first issue it has been edited by Neil Beckett, supported by an expert team of contributors including Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson, Andrew Jefford, Michael Broadbent and Roger Scruton among others. The World of Fine Wine takes a sophisticated approach to the assessment of fine wine that is neither dominated by fad or fashion, making the publication indispensable for the global fine wine aficionado, student or scholar.
Neil Beckett, Editor of The World of Fine Wine said about the archive launch: “It is great to see the archive so accessible on an iPad. Subscribers to our magazine now have instant access to all our back issues. The archive is a valuable resource for all lovers of fine wine, as well as any library needing coverage of the history and culture of wine.”
Daryl Rayner, Managing Director of Exact Editions said: “We are delighted to be working with Progressive Media International to deliver this remarkably rich and authoritative archive to all The World of Fine Wine subscribers.”
