Let’s Taste – All Saints Estate Rosa 2017

At the beginning of the year I sat down with Eliza and Angela Brown, two of the three owners of All Saints Estate in Rutherglen Victoria. It was fantastic to hear about their family background, the wine dynasty of the Brown family, and the incredible work their father put into this historic brand. I was very happy to receive a sample of this gorgeous packaged rosé from them recently, and thought I would share my impressions here on Let’s Taste. Please feel free to share your comments or questions below!

The new episode of The Vincast wine podcast is with winemaker Ben Ranken, who has been at the helm of Galli Estate for over ten years. One of the more intriguing projects he has been working on is the Adelé range at a more premium price point. On this edition I looked at two wines that come from the Sunbury vineyard, and on another edition I will look at a few wines from the Heathcote vineyard. let me know what you think in the comments below!

The Vincast Episode 072 – Adrian Santolin from Santolin Wines

Adrian Santolin grew up in the Griffith region of NSW, with both parents involved in the wine industry. He began working with wine as a teenager, and after a brief period when he contemplated a career in a completely different field, returned to Griffith to work for De Bortoli. After experience in the Hunter Valley he ended up in the Yarra Valley region of Victoria, where he eventually started his own business producing small batch wines under the Santolin Wines brand.

The Vincast Episode 033 – Christina Pickard

If you’ve ever wondered what my biggest influence was for this podcast, it was listening to The Crush podcast, hosted by Christina Pickard and Whitney Adams. The podcast was a very relaxed fun look at wine and incorporated guests and very entertaining segments. They started the podcast when Christina was in London, and Whitney was in Los Angeles, but after Christina relocated to her husband’s home town of Perth, it became more difficult to record the show. She continues to write and present, but she has also more recently started The School of Wine to educate Perth wine lovers in a fun environment.
