Wines of the French Alps - A Book Signing & Tasting with Wink Lorch!

8/22/19 -

We have anticipated the arrival of Wink Lorch's second book, Wines of the French Alps since the last in-depth profile on the Savoie was published 30 years ago by Madeleine Kamman. But you know what they say, "The Alps weren't formed in a day." And now that we have Wink's impressive companion piece to Jura Wine in our greedy paws, we understand the wait. She has compiled more than 20 years of personal experience and over 120 vigneron profiles to give us the first comprehensive volume about wine from the French Alps in the English language. In addition to useful travel guides, her book includes detailed maps of the wine regions, geological and historical context for the wines, and over 200 beautiful photographs. Like Jura Wine, her work has deepened our appreciation and understanding for these niche regions, and we stand in awe and gratitude for her immense undertaking!

Today we are thrilled to offer "Wines of the French Alps" for purchase plus a few superb bottles from vignerons featured in her latest work. We hope that you will be able to join us for a special tasting and book signing with Wink Lorch on Friday, October 4th, 5pm-7pm.

We are also delighted to invite you to Racines NY on Thursday, October 3rd for a memorable dinner with Wink featuring an assortment of wines from the French Alps alongside pairings from Chef Diego Moya (beginning at 6:30pm with 7pm dinner service). For a pre-reservation please visit or email
