I’m thrilled to be hosting the first ever edition of The Vincast Live in conjunction with the Ear Buds Podcast Network. Joining me as co-host will be wine enthusiast, activist and fellow podcaster (Quickie) Nevena Spirovska (who is also the person that invited to me to be a member of the network).
For the first edition of this new and exciting concept, we will be discussing the topic – “What are the ‘right’ grape varieties for Australian wine?” Not only is the Australian wine industry rapidly evolving with new grape varieties and alternative techniques, but so are the tastes of Australian wine consumers. With so many different options for planting in a multitude of different regions, what are the right choices to keep up with developments and trends when it comes to vitis vinifera?
Joining us will be winemakers and former guests of The Vincast; Dan Buckle from Chandon Australia and Circe Wines and guest on Episode 67 (and Episode 117) of The Vincast; and Ben Ranken from Galli Estate and Wilimee Wines, guest on this week’s episode of the podcast. There will be wines for tasting that will be relevant to the topic and hopefully fuel further discussion. I’m thrilled that we will be holding this event at Noisy Ritual in Brunswick East, owned and operated by another former guest – Alex Byrne from Episode 80 – where I also made my first Vino Intrepido wine.
Doors open at 6:30pm so you can grab a drink and introduce yourself, with the discussion beginning at 7:30pm. The show will of course be recorded for the podcast, but it will also be streamed live for those who can’t make it in person! Head to iWannaTicket to secure your spot, and feel free to invite some family and/or friends as there is a group discount for four or more!
I can’t wait to meet many of you in person and thank you for your support and listening to the show. Please let me know if you have any questions about the event!
