FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where are your
All our books are printed in Europe, which ensures the highest possible quality standards. Most titles are printed using the traditional offset process and then sewn and bound – again, to guarantee quality and longevity. However, where this is not possible due to limited demand, books may be printed digitally on demand. This will be specified in the book details.
Are your books
available on Amazon?
No they are not. Previously published titles in the Académie du Vin Librarymay well be offered on Amazon, either ‘new’ or ‘used’, but all the books available on our website are the original editions.

Can I track my delivery?
You can. Simply visit the website of the carrier specified on your Shipment Notification email and enter your order number to track the progress of your package.
Why don’t you ship to my country?
We pride ourselves on offering prompt, reliable shipping, and if the postal service of a particular country doesn’t meet our specifications, we won’t ship there. We keep the countries we ship to under constant review, but if we don’t ship to yours, contact us directly and we will find the most economical way to fulfil your order.
How many books are you planning to publish?
At Académie du Vin Library, we prize quality over quantity. We’re aiming to publish 6-7 titles per year, depending on the availability of our authors. In the pipeline is a book on Château Musar, the first in a series on iconic wineries of the world, and what we fully expect to be a groundbreaking Guide to that most magical yet temperamental of grape varieties, Pinot Noir. Sign up for an account with us and we’ll send you details of each new title when it becomes available.
Are your titles available as e-books?
Not at the moment. That may change if we receive enough requests. But the fact is, we’re in love with good old-fashioned books that are produced with care, are physically pleasing, and will stand the test of time – much like a fine wine.
