From the Author

I fell in love with Australian wine many years ago sitting naked on a beach in Sydney harbour drinking Grange Hermitage and Rouge Homme out of plastic cups. Wine never tasted better. I was blown away by Australia's unique combination of dedication to quality winemaking with joyous irreverence towards the act of drinking wine. And even today, when so much Australian wine - as elsewhere, it must be said - is produced by global companies as global brands, Australia is still throbbing with wonderful individuals joyously making wonderful individual wines. And long may that continue.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must' for any who would explore Australian wines 9 Jun 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Australian Wine Companion: An Essential Guide For All Lovers Of Australian Wine is a 'must' for any who would explore Australian wines with one of the most famous wine writers in the world. Divided by grape growing region and regional producers, this doesn't just list wineries and their specialties: it also provides both background history and insights into how the winery has changed since its establishment; in the process revealing much about Australian wine industry history as a whole. Whether you're a destination-oriented wine enthusiast or an armchair reader/drinker, Australian Wine Companion is the first starter kit.
