Finally, a book that reveals the secrets of the fascinating wines of the beautiful Jura region of eastern France. Author Wink Lorch, who has been writing about these wines for more than a decade, offers technical discussions of the wines, an overview of the region's history, and shares the untold stories of more than 90 wine producers, from small to large.

The myriad styles of Jura wines have captured the imagination of sommeliers and wine lovers around the world, but until now there has never been a book about the region in English. Wink highlights the curious grape varieties, interesting terroir and fascinating people who come together to make these wines and shows how and why the wine styles have developed over the years. You will discover which wines to choose from each producer.

This is primarily a book about Jura wines, but you'll also learn about the region's delicious cheeses, including comté, sausages and other tasty foods and drinks. To help you plan your visit to the area, you'll find tips on where to stay, eat, store and visit. This book is the ultimate insider's guide to the Jura wine region and is an essential addition to the library of wine professionals and enthusiasts.
