Aussie Wine Month Tip: Know Your Local

24 April 2017

So we’ve learnt how to swirl wine, serve wine at the right temperature and we close our eyes to focus on aromas and flavours when tasting wine. We know the wines we love but would like to explore a little more of the world of Australian wine.

So do you…

A.   You spin me right round: Head to your nearest bottle shop. Put on a blind fold on. Get a mate to spin you round three times. Buy the first bottle of wine you grab (and don’t break). Repeat this process every time you want to try a new style of wine.

B.   Head to Google. Search Mystery Wine Box. Pick and purchase any one of the myriad of options. If you are lucky you’ll get a delicious selection of interesting Australian wines. If you are unlucky you’ll get a box of wines that no one would buy if they actually knew what they were before purchase!

C.  Get to know your local wine retailer. They’ll be able to guide you through the sometimes intimidating, give you matching suggestions and helping you pick the perfect bottle.

Now, if you chose A or B we love your enthusiasm and you love of living life on the edge! But the right answer is most definitely C. Getting to know your local wine retailer is one of the best ways to explore and learn more about wine. They’ll be able to guide you through the sometimes intimidating world of wine, give you matching suggestions and helping you pick the perfect bottle!
