Wink Lorch: Author and Educator: Jura Wine and Wines of the French Alps

Wink Lorch published 'Jura Wine' in 2014 and followed it with 'Wines of the French Alps' in 2019. Both books were researched to the 'nth' degree, very well laid out and filled important gaps that had been left behind by almost every wine book before them.

These are books that every wine library, educator and sommelier should have, read and use. They are travelogues, they bring us detailed wine and food knowledge and, most importantly, introduce us to the people and artisans of the regions involved. 

In this podcast Wink talks of the pitfalls associated with self publishing and how she became a leading expert on wines that are unique among their peers. We are introduced to the vagaries and brilliance of Jura Wine and then (almost have time to) touch on the wines of the French Alps: Savoie, Bugey and Beyond 

Wink is a founding member of the Association of Wine Educators, is a member of the Circle of Wine Writers has contributed to many books and publications and continues to lecture widely.  see: https://winetravelmedia.com/about/

While all restaurants in Ireland are closed right now they WILL open again. We all hope that this is soon. We should remember that many of these, including the wonderful Monty's of Kathmandu, are family businesses. They are often small and brilliant and when they do reopen they will need our support more than ever. Keep Safe and Keep well. 

Kevin Ecock's WinePod is brought to us with the assistance of the Santa Rita Wine Room at Monty's of Kathmandu - an excellent place to host your next event or celebration.
