With her heart in tatters after a relationship break-up, Rose Bennett swaps her hometown of London for the sunny shores of Australia – but she arrives to find the Shingle Valley shrouded in winter.
As the weather improves, Rose starts to unlock the secrets of the valley – from bonfire ceremonies and wine-making traditions to eccentric locals and their histories.
Despite herself, Rose starts to fall in love: with the valley, the wines, the two children she’s helping to look after – and with the handsome and brilliant Mark Cameron, owner of the troubled Kalkari Wines estate.
What will happen when Mark’s estranged wife, the tempestuous Isabella, returns? Will Rose find a future in the Shingle Valley, or will she be forced to leave?

I love to read, but it is only a very few authors who can make me disappointed once I finish the book. Wonderful story and also informative. Loved it 💜💜
Stunning debut novel
I read the whole of Rose's Vintage cover to cover in two days. I simply could not put it down.
A beautiful story with many twists and turns, perfect descriptions of the Australian countryside & lots of information about wine-making woven into the story.
I was gripped by Rose's journey & found myself having a sneaky read when my kids were out of the room, as I was so engrossed.
A very easy read & a wonderful debut novel.
I can't wait to read more from The Shingle Valley.
Great read although pretty predictable, page turner. Fist book I have read of the author but will look for more of her books
