It’s here! The Fabulous Ladies’ Guide to Wine – the book

It’s finally here! Australia’s first ever book specifically for – and about – women who love wine and those who produce it.

The Fabulous Ladies’ Guide to Wine by Jane Thomson is now available.

When it comes to books about wine, few cater specifically for the female wine consumer. But 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 & 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. All presented in a fully hand-illustrated, 260-page, glossy design.

In keeping with Jane’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.

Those featured include:

  • Christie Schulz, Turkey Flat
  • Leanne De Bortoli, De Bortoli Wines
  • Katherine & Caroline Brown, Brown Brothers
  • Corrina Wright, Oliver’s Taranga
  • Judy Kelly, ArtWine
  • Helen O’Brien, Kangarilla Road
  • Emma Raidis, Raidis Estate
  • Clare Halloran, Tarra Warra
  • Trina Smith, Jacob’s Creek

  • Emma Norbiato, Calabria Family Wines
  • Lyndsay Sharp, Jack Rabbit Vineyard
  • Katrina Pizzini, Pizzini Wines
  • Leanne Rogers, The Lake House Denmark
  • Wendy Killeen, Stanton & Killeen

“Celebrating Australia’s women in wine and sharing the joys of wine with women who love to drink it are my two great passions,” said Jane. “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.

The book’s RRP is $39.95 and is currently sold online here at The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society  and via selected cellar doors around Australia, with further distribution to follow.
