REGULARS

The Bright Side

Sometimes the most calamitous of events provides an opportunity for ingenious inventions – as these two fermenters found.

Changing the Guard

Two Burgundian domaines are each carving out a space for their unique take on pinot; meanwhile, one Australian woman is shaking up the whole region – and all of France.

Back to Nature

Two exciting ventures from Victoria and South Australia are keen to bring avant-garde and, dare we say it, orange wines to a wider audience.

Bringing Brandy Back

The grape-based dark spirit that once graced liquor cabinets throughout the country is ripe for a comeback if the efforts of these makers are anything to go by.

Chenin Blanc

It’s not easy making new friends, but some local winemakers are extending the welcome mat to an oft-dismissed French variety.

Must-Try Wines from Alsace

Due to one of the most complex geologies of any wine region in the country, Alsace has the ability to produce exceptional riesling, pinot gris and gewürztraminer, with muscat, pinot blanc and pinot noir not far behind. Angus Hughson reviews his favourites.

Early Morning

Rise and shine with Mornington Peninsula’s alcohol-free pale ale, the latest in a search for the brewers’ holy grail.

The Extra Mile

What drives a person? Look to their wine, not their car.

Off The Press

Catch up on all the latest news in the wine world, including openings in the Yarra Valley, Melbourne and Sydney and new releases from the Barossa Valley's St Hugo and Gippsland's Bellvale Wines.

Sommelier's Choice

“Food and wine matching is such a special experience when done well,” says Matthew Stewart of Lotus Dining Group. “This is especially so with the myriad flavours on offer with Chinese cuisine.”

A Pawsome Weekend
