While the land Down Under can immediately conjure images of kangaroos and the outback, Australia has another major characteristic that is often overlooked: their wine industry. In Campbell Mattinson’s new book Thin Skins: Why the French Hate the Australians, he explores Australia’s nuanced history and their uphill battle to become an emerging force in the global wine market. Thin Skins examines the forces fighting Australian wine, the lies surrounding it, and the people who are saving it by making quality wine with character. A fascinating and engaging read, Thin Skins by Campbell Mattinson just might inspire you to find a new favorite wine-growing region. Give it a try! Thin Skins, by Sterling Publishing, is available in stores and online for $23.
