About How to Drink Australian: An Essential Modern Wine Book

How to Drink Australian: An Essential Modern Wine Book is a lively, in-depth, and sometimes surprising exploration of the why, the how, and the where of the most exciting wine-producing country in the world today. Centuries of innovation and determination have led to an era of exceptional achievement in Australia, yet it is a country whose output is not matched by its scholarship. Until now. How to Drink Australian brings together global experts to answer its namesake question, offering sweeping, practical, and compelling insight into all aspects of Australian wine: exhaustive analysis of every significant region, stunning and detailed maps, bespoke illustrations and artwork, individual wine recommendations, hundreds of producer profiles, a fold-out region-by-region grape table and more, all curated with a reverence for Australia’s first custodians. How to Drink Australian is the modern wine book that Australia (and a world of wine drinkers) has been waiting for.

Jane Lopes and Jonathan Ross lead this important book, with contributions from Mike Bennie, Kavita Faiella, and Hannah Day, and original maps by Martin von Wyss.

Lopes published her first book, Vignette: Stories of Life and Wine in 100 Bottles, in 2019.
