Written by Robert Walters who imports a lot of great wine to Australia. This includes some of the best Grower Producers (small producers) from Champagne. This is part history lesson, part travel adventure story and wholly entertaining to read. It reminds me of Kermit Lynch’s ‘Adventures On The Wine Route‘ with an Australian accent.
The rise and rise of a group of artisan producers over the last twenty years has challenged everything we thought we knew about this famous region. In Bursting Bubbles, Robert Walters takes us on a journey to visit these great growers. Along the way, he reveals a secret history of Champagne and dispels many of the myths that still persist about this celebrated wine style. Controversial and groundbreaking, Bursting Bubbles will change the way you think about Champagne. Hardcover, 240 pages.
