Illustrated book about grower Champagne by Yoko Ota-Sawyer.
'My name is Yoko & I am the creator of this book. After spending a little over 15 years in the wine industry working across retail sales in the US, wine judging in the UK, Japan & France, as well as working harvests & cellar jobs in Champagne & Mosel, I have discovered my heart belongs to grower Champagne or Champagne de Vignerons as French people say. My passion, besides learning & tasting in Champagne, is figuring out fun & approachable ways to communicate all things Champagne by doing things I love such as writing & drawing.
My commute to Champagne started in 2015. I kept going back to the region because producers were teaching me things I had never learned in wine classes & books. I wished I knew those things so that I could have understood & appreciated champagne better a long time ago without confusion & struggle. I took notes as I learned & I learned a lot. This book is a summary of my handwritten notes with drawings to cover complicated topics & the work that goes behind to make each bottle of champagne. It also includes my favorite things such as tasting & food pairing because champagne is a lot more than just a glass to enjoy for special occasions.'
