It’s tough but someone has to do it – visiting Tasmania

A brief blog today from the technological third world. I can’t manage to hold an internet connection for more than about 5 minutes so no point in rambling on about specials. It must be something to do with the remote area that I’m in called Melbourne.

Heading down to Tasmania tonight on the ferry to talk with a bunch (?) of winemakers and growers including Rita Richter of Grey Sands, Loraine Kossman of Chartley Estate, the folks at Goaty Hill, Brian Franklin at Apsley Gorge, Claudio Radenti of Freycinet Vineyards, Alastair Christie of Cape Bernier and Kate Hill of Kate Hill. Expect to see some or more of their wines in Singapore in the coming months.

In the meantime, stay in touch with Robert Rees at Wine Exchange Asia, Patricia & Lewis at Le Vigne, Arjen Blom at Wine Directions and the team at The Local Nose and you won’t go far wrong.

Til next week, happy drinking!

Wine quotations

"A good bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world" - Louis Pasteur

“The unexacting palates of the masses…are content to ask no question [on origin] so long as a florin or half-a-crown will purchase a roomy flagon of strong , full-bodied, fruity wine” – CE Hawker writing in 1907
