Love Australian wine?
Australian winemaking started off a bit rocky due primarily to an unfamiliar terrain and environment. But by the early 1800s, Australian wine was available domestically and was being exported. Throughout the 1800s, Australian wines won award after award in Europe, proving themselves time and time again to be on par with their old world counterparts.
To this day, Australian wines are loved and appreciated the world over. In fact, Australia is the 4th largest exporter of wine in the world. James Halliday’s Varietal Wines is full of interesting and wonderful facts about Australian winemaking, making it a great men’s wine gift and coffee table book.
