With the Christmas and New Year period rapidly approaching our tastebuds turn to sparkling wine, and on this episode I have returning guest Phil Smith from The Wine Depository join me to discuss the many styles of sparkling wine and ways to enjoy them.

My first returning guest is Phil Smith of The Wine Depository, and he joins me to talk about Wine Tourism. Welcoming visitors to a winery to sell direct is one of the most important parts of the business and offering a compelling cellar door experience continues to increase in value. We talk about the many options of navigating, visiting, eating, learning and sleeping in wine regions, sharing some of our own personal experiences.
Phil Smith runs a specialist online retail business called The Wine Depository, and worked for over eight years at Rathdowne Cellars. I invited him in on Episode Five of The Vincast to talk about the nature of wine retail, particularly as it applies to the Australian market. We also tasted the Eden Road Seedling Shiraz 2010 and assesed it from a retail buyer’s perspective.
