The Vincast Episode 027 – Wine shows with Sam Hooper

Wine shows have a long and important history in the Australian wine industry, and we are now coming to the end of the show season for 2014. There are few greater triumphs as a wine producer than receiving a coveted trophy at one of the many shows run in major capitals and regional locations. Sam Hooper from Cellarhand Wines joins me again to discuss the nature of wine shows, and how they are staying relevant in a modern and dynamic wine market.

The Vincast Episode 011 – Tom Carson from Yabby Lake and Heathcote Estate

The Jimmy Watson Trophy is one of the most coveted and prestigious prizes in Australian winemaking, and for the first time since the 1950s a Pinot Noir has recently taken it out. On this episode I welcome the trophy-winning winemaker from Yabby Lake Tom Carson, who over the past 20 years has established a place in the industry not only for his exceptional skills as a vigneron but also his innovative business insights. We cover his origins, his studies and his path in the industry that has led him to putting pinot noir back on the map.
