Graeme Lofts to cover trial of 'Champagne Jayne'

Graeme Lofts

I am delighted that Australian author Graeme Lofts will be covering the forthcoming case the CIVC v Jayne Powell (aka Champagne Jayne) for Jim's Loire. The case is due to start on Monday 15th December in the Federal Court in Melbourne and is estimated to last four days. Graeme will be sending in daily reports. 

Graeme writes books on science as well as wine. In 2012 his Heart & Soul: Australia’s First Families of Wine was shortlisted and ranked second in the New World Wines category of the 2011 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.
