The Vincast Episode 122 – John Harris from Mitchell Harris Wines

Growing up in Ballarat, John Harris graduated from Charles Sturt University with a degree in oenology in 1999, and soon took up a position at Domaine Chandon. Over the next seven years he gained much experience and by the end of his tenure was in charge of sparkling production for the Yarra Valley-based operation. In 2008, along with his wife’s extended family, he began the Mitchell Harris brand that would eventually be based in their mutual home town of Ballarat.

So I started a Youtube channel…

In an effort to incorporate more visual stuff to my communications, I’ve started posting some videos on my Youtube Channel, IntrepidWino. So far I’ve only posted a few random videos I’ve recorded in some of my travels, and one I recorded of myself opening a bottle of sparkling wine the way I was taught at Domaine Chandon.

The idea is to start creating more video content, some videos explaining the way I taste wine and some of my philosophies around wine. More importantly I’m going to start streaming live tastings with guests (winemakers, importers, sommeliers), which will then be available on this channel. Let me know if this is something you’d like to see and/or be involved with.

Just as a taster, here’s the link to a video I recorded in June 2014 when I was visiting Damijan Podversic in the hills of Collio. Please like and favourite, and subscribe to the channel so you don’t miss any of the content I’m planning on uploading soon.
