UK delivery within 2 weeks


How to Drink Australian is a fresh and relevant guide to understanding and appreciating Australian wine: its many diverse regions, wineries, and people. For the person who asks, 'What wine region should I be paying more attention to?' or 'How can I really know what's going on with Australian wine?'How to Drink Australian is the answer.

In this modern take on the classic compendium, three highly credentialled wine experts provide wine lovers, both locally and around the world, with renewed excitement and appreciation for Australian wine. Divided by state and then region, How to Drink Australian considers: standout producers, historic development, microclimates and geographical features, important trends, and pressing issues such as the effects of climate change.

How to Drink Australian celebrates the narrative of what it is to drink Australian today while also offering critical insight into the formation of its land and people, linking the custodianship of First Nations and modern-day grape-growers. Leading winemakers and growers offer their insight on what's significant and special about their part of the wine world. Additionally, it provides know-how on Australia's Geographic Indication system, and explores the unique characteristics of each wine producing region with original maps of a detail that have yet to be shared in Australian wine scholarship.

Covering simply everything there is to know about this contemporary landscape in wine production, How to Drink Australian is the comprehensive wine book we've been waiting for.
