The rise and rise of a group of artisanal producers in Champagne over the last twenty years has challenged everything we thought we knew about this famous region. In Bursting Bubbles, Robert Walters takes us on a journey to visit these great growers. Along the way, he reveals a secret history of Champagne and dispels many of the myths that still persist about this celebrated wine style. Controversial and ground breaking, Bursting Bubbles will change the way you think about Champagne.

In his foreword, multi-award-winning author Andrew Jefford has called Bursting Bubbles, ‘The most engaging book about leading Champagne growers I’ve read, full of insight and detail’ and ‘…the most refreshing, pretension-pricking, myth-busting and amusingly unfrothy book on the subject.’

‘...This is part history lesson, part travel adventure story and wholly entertaining to read. It reminds me of Kermit Lynch’s ‘Adventures On The Wine Route’ with an Australian accent.’ — The Wine Depository
