Vignette by Jane Lopes | Hardie Grant Publishing

Vignette Stories of Life and Wine in 100 Bottles


In Vignette, sommelier Jane Lopes recommends the 100 bottles of wine (and some spirits and beers) to best expand your wine journey, giving you a complete palate education of the important styles, grapes, regions, and flavours of this magical and ever-growing world. For each bottle, an index of more affordable alternatives is given too.

Alongside the wines, you will find imaginative ways to engage with and remember the foundational wine knowledge that underpins a good drinking experience, as well as Jane's personal stories of her own emotional engagement with each wine. It's part memoir and part wine book, but a lot more fun than either alone.
