    Perfect Wines For Meatless Monday
    Over the last few years there’s been an increasing trend in Vegan and Vegetarian diets which is no surprise considering that for quite a while now we've been hearing how going meatless at least once a week has health benefits for us and the planet. Many are opting for Meatless Monday's and as a result, we have recently seen an increasing... read more
  2. Two new French Favourites from Wine Mason!

    Two new French Favourites from Wine Mason!
    Wine Mason held their annual portfolio tasting last week and it is fair to say they have set the standard high - a very boutique selection!  They showed just the right amount with about ten tables in total.  On the whole the wines represent a taste that is currently very on trend, one that is ultimately lighter and quite fresh... read more

    Tindal’s 2019 Portfolio Tasting: Part 1 [Anna Hickson]
    This week I’ll be reviewing wines from Tindal’s Portfolio tasting in two parts. This is the problem with having too many favourites, brevity becomes a hopeless aim! As it happens, I’ve only mentioned reds here but these are all very suitable wines for this time of the year - rich and warmly spiced. A brief note on Tindal’s introduction to... read more
  6. Women in Wine! Australian Trade Tasting 2019 [Anna Hickson]

    Women in Wine! Australian Trade Tasting 2019 [Anna Hickson]
    Last Wednesday I sipped my way around the annual Australia Wine Tasting at The Mansion House on Dawson Street. 30 out of 65 Australian wine regions were represented - a wide range in terms of climatic influence and style. The spotlight fell in the middle of the room on The Women in Wine Focus Table, an impressive exhibit from some... read more
