REGULARS

Wines with Depth

Mike Bennie has added two producers to his watch list, both with a vision to reinvigorate the land and region in which their unique and compelling varieties grow.

Growing Pains

Are consumers rejecting the big Champagne houses for growers? Jancis Robinson MW examines the changes happening in one of the world’s most famous wine regions.

Vietti’s Word

For many, making the perfect wine can be difficult, and taking risks can be more damaging than beneficial, but in Luca Currado Vietti’s words, “you must live on the edge”.

Lady’s Shout

A lady-led revolution in the Australian beer industry is giving competitors a run for their money.

Smart Thinking

The Australian wine industry can’t afford to wait any longer when it comes to its response to climate change. There’s one voice that has been saying this the loudest and the longest.

Le Rebelle Perth

Where should you go for a Parisian and West Australian-style fusion of food and wine? Why, visit the intimate and ‘romantica’ setting of Le Rebelle, of course.

Off The Press

Catch up on all the latest news in the wine and food world.

Nervous in New York

Hart, an American wine collector, had come to Penfolds’ New York re-corking clinic with the first four vintages of Grange ever made – the rare experimental 1951 (never released) and the ’52, ’53 and ’54 – for assessment by chief winemaker Peter Gago.

What Lies Beneath? Subterra!

McLaren Vale organic producer Gemtree Wines have taken digging deep to a new level. Winemaker Mike Brown and viticulturist Melissa Brown have turned the unearthing of their Subterra barrel project into something incredibly special.

Best in the West

Talisman Wines has dominated this year’s WA Boutique and Blackwood Valley Wine Shows with its seductively textured and refined 2018 Cabernet Malbec winning WAs Best Boutique Wine of the Show.

Celebrating Organics

As ethical consumerism and interest in long-term sustainability continues to grow, so does a demand for organic wine. An increasing number of Australian winemakers are adopting organic principles in the vineyard, boosting the industry’s green image both locally and abroad.
