About the Book

Everything Happens for a Riesling: your ‘not so fancy-pants’ guide to wine is the debut wine book from Sydney based wine tragic, playwright, and writer Grace de Morgan.


Whether you are new to wine, a budding wine tragic or studying for your WSET or Sommelier exams Grace de Morgan has something to say to you.    Packed with useful insights on styles, regions, trends and the future of wine, Everything Happens for a Riesling is a welcome new addition to anyone’s wine library and an essential part of one’s wine education

Funny, erudite, helpful and packed full of useful information, this  is the wine book that says ‘boo’ to acting like a snob. It’s your ultimate guide to hacking the world of vino.  As Grace would say, she’s here to help you get more of the wine experiences you want, minus the pretentiousness.

This is a toolkit, not a textbook – a cheat sheet for all the vino-related questions you didn’t realise you had. For example: where do you store wine if you don’t have a cellar? Who (or what) is Gewurztraminer? Are decanters a thing?

Whether you can’t tell your rose from your Riesling or are busy studying to be a Master Sommelier, Everything Happens for a Riesling has got something to make you go ‘Mmm, more please.’

About Grace
