I started my 100 Best Australian Wines initiative back in 2004 in order to highlight the finest Australian wines sold in the UK.
In the first few years I simply handed out an A4 sheet to all-comers with 100 wine names on it.
Today, 100 Best takes the form of a 25000+ word Report which also points out other wines of interest from the wineries who make the grade.
This Report is published in booklet form and is also available to download free of charge for website Members.
I launch each year’s collection of 100 Best Australian wines in May, at Australia House in London, and then from September to March I take a large selection of the wines on a global Roadshow, taking in Australia, China and, of course, the UK.
The UK Roadshow events are all extraordinary and no two are the same. I visit all corners of the country partnering with the finest wine merchants, art galleries, museums, town halls and restaurants.
Whether the events are walkabout, free-pour style, tutored masterclasses or fine wine dinners, the wines that accompany me on the Roadshow are always of the highest quality imaginable and in 2018/19 over 2500 people tasted wines ranging from £10 – £150 across all styles of wine from all corners of the Australia.
