Winner of the Drink Prize in the André Simon Food and Drink Book Awards 2014, Jura Wine uncovers the secrets of the fascinating wines of this gorgeous region in eastern France. Don’t go to the Jura without it!
A recent (2016) quote about the book was sent to Wink from wine author, Alice Feiring from New York: “I find myself consulting your book all the time, every time I dip in again, it gets better and better.”
Author Wink Lorch, who has been writing about these wines for over a decade, and in the book she offers technical discussions on the wines, an insight into at the region’s history and shares often untold stories of over 90 wine producers from the smallest to the largest.
The myriad styles of Jura wines have caught the imagination of wine lovers and professionals around the world, yet until now there has never been a book written about the region in English. Wink puts the spotlight on the curious grapes, interesting terroir and fascinating people who come together to produce these wines, and she shows how and why the wine styles have developed over the years. You will discover which wines are the ones to select from each producer.
