The official launch of Vineglorious! Switzerland’s Wondrous World of Wines is at the Vinea Swiss Wines Fair Saturday 6 September in Sierre. I’ll be selling and signing the books there from 16:00-18:00.
Background information and views of some of the pages are at ellen-books.com, which is where online sales begin 1 September.
Mary Tiegreen, the designer, is taking a well-deserved break, but chapeau! to her for the excellent job and for being a wonderful friend to work with. The book focuses on the quality of Swiss wines, so it seemed fitting to have it printed in Lausanne, a city long known for its fine arts printing excellence: PCL didn’t let me down and the book is another good example of “made in Switzerland”.
