People who really understand good wine are conscious that wine is unlike any other beverage. You can’t just whip up another batch once a vintage has depleted! Vignerons get one chance, once a year, to grow a finite number of grapes to make a limited quantity of wine. When it’s gone – it’s gone!
That’s why people invest small fortunes [sometimes large] on collecting wines, and why it is so interesting to study.
I’ve been studying, drinking, following and loving wine for a long time. After completing my B.WineMktg at the University of Adelaide (formerly ‘Roseworthy‘ – for those of earlier vintages) in 2004, I set off travelling the globe, visiting wine regions, photographing vines and writing for my hobby-web Cellar Door2Door.
These days, I am back in Melbourne, Australia – where I work in wine retail. Savings somewhat depleted, my days of globe-trotting are over for now. But there’s still a mountain of photo’s and visits to wine regions still waiting to come out of the mothballs and get written up!
I’ve also become a big fan of Social Media, and I’m also having loads of fun venturing into this area of world-wide communication.
So – welcome to my wine blog.
There’s a plethora of wines out there, just waiting for me to try, and many stories to tell about the wonderful world of wine. Come back and share them all with me sometime.
