The Vincast Episode 089 – Jane Faulkner

Jane Faulkner is one of Australia’s most loved and respected wine journalists, with several decades of experience and countless tasting notes under her belt. She is also one of the most travelled wine writers, and is considered one of the foremost experts on Italian wine and alternative varieties in Australia. This is in part due to her role as chair of the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show. She (finally) joined me on this episode of The Vincast to talk about her background, her insights, her thoughts on wine communication, and the direction she hopes alternative varieties head in this country.

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.
