On March 22 we will be launching our next book (in Stockholm). It is a different kind of champagne book. We do of course go into the details of how champagne is made, the grapes, the history etc, but in addition to that we give you a lot of insider information that is rarely talked about in Champagne. So it gives the reader a unique inside into this sparkling wine.
But what makes this book really different is that the second part of the book, on wine producers, is dedicated exclusively to what is called “growers’ champagne”. These are the independent, often family-owned small wine producers who both grow the vines and make the wine. (As opposed to the big and famous “houses” that everyone is familiar with, that are mainly marketing driven “négociant” producers who buy grapes from grape growers.) The growers’ champagnes is the most exciting sector today of this northern French wine regions. It is here that you find the most individual and individualistic expressions of grapes, terroir, climate and winemaking. The book is unfortunately so far only available in Swedish.
