Australian Wines
Far from Ordinary

This winter, Australia has been much on my mind. After watching news report after news report about the devastating fires which seemed to encircle the entire continent/country of Australia, and hearing of the decimation of so many of Australia’s iconic animal species, I was being constantly reminded of things that I had seen and experienced in my travels to this unique country.



​For decades, much of the general public had perceived the wines of Australia as essentially two varieties: Chardonnay and Shiraz (usually with labels that have some sort of cute animal prancing around.) As we got more comfortable with wines coming from such an exotic place, we were then suddenly surprised to find that winegrowing in Australia didn't just start in the 1970's! Imagine that!
