\nWhat can we add to the praise above? How to Drink Australian is the modern wine book Australia (and a world of wine drinkers) has been waiting for. Authors Jane Lopes and Jonathan Ross will be well known to our audience, not least through their days at Attica and The Rockpool Group, respectively. Since relocating to Nashville, they have established a successful import and education business—Legend—focused on changing the prevailing attitudes towards Australian wines in the States (where the big players control an overwhelming piece of the pie).\n Years in the making—and you’ll quickly find out why when you have a copy in your hands—How to Drink Australian is the most important book written on our country’s wines and wine culture in a long time. Set across 500 pages, with telling collaborations from Kavita Faiella, Mike Bennie and Hannah Day, Jane and Jon have woven together a perceptive analysis of every significant wine region, bespoke illustrations and artwork, and hundreds of producer profiles. At the same time, Martin von Wyss’s gorgeously meticulous maps are second to none, and the photography is superb. Put simply, Lopes and Ross have knocked it out of the park.\n This is a remarkably detailed and comprehensive survey of Australia’s contemporary wine scene—everyone and anyone in the wine trade owes it to themselves to own a copy.
