• Wine anxiety & Vignette book release, with foreword by Ben Shewry

    In Vignette: Stories of Life & Wine in 100 Bottles, Jane Lopes takes the reader on a very personal journey through wine. In his foreword for Lopes’ book, Ben Shewry, the legendary chef-owner of Attica, talks about the awkwardness that he often felt around wine, as well as the talents of Lopes to quell that anxiety and allow him to finally “learn to love wine.” Shewry nicely captures, through his own lens, what it feels like to be a wine ‘outsider’ and how with the right guidance a new and sometimes magical world can be opened for us all.
