There’s never been a more exciting time to drink Australian wine. Centuries of innovation and determination have led to an era of exceptional achievement in Australia, yet it is a country whose vinous output is not matched by its scholarship. Until now. How to Drink Australian brings together global experts to answer its namesake question, offering sweeping, practical, and compelling insight on all aspects of Australian wine: exhaustive analysis of every significant wine region, stunning and detailed original maps, bespoke illustrations and artwork, individual wine recommendations, hundreds of producer profiles, a fold-out grape table, and much more, all curated with a reverence to Australia’s first custodians. How to Drink Australian is the modern wine book that Australia (and a world of wine drinkers) has been waiting for.


Jane and Jon started off their careers in the US in retail and hospitality, between them working at Eleven Madison Park, The Violet Hour, The Catbird Seat, Oceana, and others. Jane and Jon moved to Australia in 2017 to work at Attica and the Rockpool Group, respectively, and gained a quick appreciation for the wines of Australia—and how little exposure there was to them in the US. While in Australia, Jane and Jon both passed the master sommelier exam, Jane wrote her first book titled Vignette, and Jon started making wine under his own label: Micro Wines. Upon returning to the US in 2020, Jane and Jon launched Legend Imports, a company devoted solely to importing Australian wine to the US. They could not be more thrilled to be bringing the great wines (and stories)of Australia to a table near you.
