Synopsis

'Hugely entertaining' Jay Rayner

'A brilliantly Bourdain-ish tale of a young woman making her way through the sexist American fine-dining world' Observer

SHORTLISTED FOR THE FORTNUM & MASON FOOD AND DRINK AWARDS 2021
LONGLISTED FOR THE ANDRÉ SIMON FOOD & DRINK BOOK AWARDS 2020

Aged twenty-one, Victoria James was named the US's youngest sommelier, working in Michelin-starred restaurants, serving the finest wines.

The groping patrons she learned to handle, but, behind the scenes, the world of high-end dining was a mess of fractious relationships and unacknowledged abuse. It would take hitting rock-bottom for Victoria to find her way back to the industry she adores.

Wine Girl is the memoir of a young woman breaking free from her traumatic childhood. It's the story of overcoming a notoriously misogynistic business, and of the restorative power of a glass of wine with friends.

'Addictive' Stylist

'A must-read' Daily Telegraph

'I glugged at the gossipy bits and sipped at the sad parts . . . you'll raise a glass to her extraordinary resilience' Sunday Times
