‘The Fabulous Ladies’ Guide to Wine’ by Jane Thomson is now available, detailing everything you need to know about women and wine in Australia.
When it comes to books about wine, few cater specifically for the female wine consumer. That’s exactly what the brand-new book The Fabulous Ladies’ Guide to Wine has done. It’s unashamedly a book about wine for women who love to drink it.
Authored by the founder of The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society and the Australian Women in Wine Awards, Jane Thomson, it provides a fun and fabulous read for any woman who wants to learn a little more about her favourite beverage.
In keeping with Thompson’s well-known passion and advocacy for women in wine, the book also has a deliberate and strong focus on female wine producers. In particular, it features the behind the scenes stories and favourite food and wine matches of 16 of this country’s most fabulous women in wine – who also provide a secret family recipe from their vault, so you can make it at home and pair it with their chosen wine.
“Celebrating Australia’s women in wine and sharing the joys of wine with women who love to drink it are my two great passions,” says Thompson. “To bring them together in a book for the first time is an absolute dream come true.”
The book is an eclectic mix of stories, information, articles, interviews and beautiful illustrations, with the content divided into four main sections: Drinking It, Matching It, Visiting It and Making It.
The ‘Visiting It’ section includes a guide to some of Australia’s best wine regions and recommendations for the most fabulous (female led) cellar doors and wineries to visit.
