La Champagne,
Champagne and Les Champenois
A handmade ode-to-Champagne book by Yoko Ota-Sawyer

Do you enjoy champagne? Have you ever wondered how it’s made? This handwritten and hand-illustrated book covers all things Champagne, from its unique soils, grape growing, and production process, to food pairing ideas. Each page explores a wide range of topics presented to you by actual producers and experts, who are special guests and friends of the author.

Paris-educated, Boston-based and a die-hard fan of grower Champagne, Yoko Ota-Sawyer has 15 years of experience in the world of wine, spanning retail sales in the United States; wine judging in the United Kingdom, Japan and France; and numerous harvests and cellar jobs in Champagne and Mosel.

Yoko has been working on this project for many years with a singular objective: to communicate everything Champagne-related in a way that is easy to understand. Uniquely equipped with not only a passion in the subject but also numerous behind-the-scenes experiences, Yoko also happens to be an accomplished illustrator. Her Instagram account @yokobubble frequently features her charming illustrations of all things Champagne, and now she’s making good use of her artistic talents for the benefit of all wine lovers.


Yoko has crafted a playful and highly personal book, clarifying key aspects behind this beloved wine in a charming and approachable manner. Filled with anecdotes, illustrations, testimonials and technical minutiae from the Champagne growers who have become her friends over the years, this book will appeal to both neophytes and wine nerds. This is her debut publication.

We’re honoured to be the official Singapore distributor of Yoko’s very special book, and we are super stoked to offer to you today a limited number of copies from the second print run (of 1,000 copies).

This is a collection of my notes gathered from many winegrowers who have joined me on my adventures travelling and drinking throughout Champagne. What emerges is a focus on Champagne growers and grower Champagne, the hardworking artisans and their glorious wines. Their dedication to farming and expertise in the cellar has been a source of endless fascination for me and I hope this book represents that.
