A book that uncovers the mystery and myriad styles of the Jura wine region and its wines, which have caught the imagination of wine lovers worldwide. Wink includes insight into the region’s history and culture, unravels the complications of this tiny wine region, and shares often untold stories of over 90 wine producers from the smallest to the largest. Local food and travel tips are a bonus. Wink has been a writer and educator on wine for many years, and her books appeal to wine professionals and wine lovers alike. Living partly in the French Alps, only a couple of hours from the Jura region, she has written about the region’s wine, food and tourism for many international magazines and books.

After years hidden away in the craggy mountains, wines from Savoie and Bugey are now offered worldwide. This book tells the story of the men and women who make these characterful wines, how they have tamed the steep hillsides to plant the vines and mastered their unusual grape varieties.

Alongside almost 120 producer profiles, Wink summarizes the appellations, terroir, grapes, winegrowing and winemaking, and explores the history that has made these wines worthy of a place on the finest tables. This is a more complete documentation on the wines of Savoie, Bugey and beyond than anything ever published, even in French. It is set to become an essential handbook for wine lovers and wine professionals.

All copies purchased before the 25th of January will receive a signed book plate from Wink Lorch.
