REGULARS

Pox and Stocks

Yarra Valley winemakers were forced to defend the keep when ‘Phylloxera the Destroyer’ rolled up in 2006. Now an uneasy peace between pest and producer is seeding deep-rooted changes.

Scourge to Sublime

What to do with the noxious lantana erupting up and down the east coast of Australia? Why, make a gin out of it, of course. 

Past, Meet Future

Stripped back and calling to mind beers from another time, Future Mountain’s funk-forward range is worth the hike.

Use Your Melon

A cross between pinot blanc and gouais blanc, Melon de Bourgogne is a plucky little grape winning hearts for its frost-resistant nature and the crisp dry whites it produces.

Against The Grain

Not afraid to buck tradition, the talented staff at Dassai in south-west Japan have been polishing their brewing skills to create sake with soul.

A Franc Discussion

The Central Otago region is renowned for its stunning pinot noir, but one winemaker is gambling on a different grape. Meanwhile in North Canterbury, change is afoot at Pyramid Valley. 

Driving Habits

Could F1 racing car driver and wine brand collaborator Daniel Ricciardo become the poster boy for healthier wine consumption?

Best Beverage on Earth

As the rush to plant vines in southern Australia hit its straps in the mid-1800s, French winemakers watched on with concern.

Top Picks from Barolo and Other Stars

From a set of cult Barolos to a gleaming Bairrada baga, intrepid expert Nick Stock recommends a dozen of the most impressive wines to have hit our shores of late.

Turn Back Time

One dog year is supposedly the equivalent of seven humans years, but how does physics explain 25 magazine years – and what should you buy as a gift?

Josh Di Stefano & Florence Diffey of Newcastle's Vera Wine

After cutting their teeth at some of Melbourne’s best-known wine haunts like Prince Wine Store, Marion, and Blackhearts & Sparrows, Josh Di Stefano and Florence Diffey headed north to open Vera Wine in what might seem an unlikely location – Newcastle.

What's On

BY AMY NORTHCOTT

Meet the Maker – Sam Pfeiffer of Whistler Wines, Barossa

2022 is a big year for the Barossa’s Whistler Wines. It marks the winery’s 25th anniversary, and also sees second-generation Sam Pfeiffer take the reins from his parents, shifting Whistler Wines into the next gear. We asked him what’s in the pipeline for 2022 and beyond.

Shichida – Tenzan Sake Brewery

This year, Deja Vu Sake Co is celebrating 10 years of representing some of Japan’s finest sakes in Australia. We’d like to introduce you to a few of our favourite Japanese sake breweries and tempt you with some delicious suggestions. Kampai! 

Austrian Wine and the VieVinum Trade Fair

GT WINE was thrilled to attend Austria’s revered biannual trade fair VieVinum in May, the first time since 2018 the three-day event has been able to proceed. 

2022 Vintage Reports

Read 2022 Vintage Reports from the Hunter Valley, Southern Highlands, Mornington Peninsula, Beechworth, Coal River Valley, Adelaide Hills, Riverland, Granite Belt and Margaret River.

60 Years of Moorilla

Sixty years for a mainland Australia wine producer is not uncommon, but for a Tasmanian vineyard it’s impressive.
