Aussie Wine Month – Viticulture

Aussie Wine Month – Viticulture

Posted by:

Many years ago, when I started my love affair with wine, I would often sit with a glass and wonder "Where did this wine come from? What was the journey that took it all the way from the grape to my glass?"

As my own journey continued, I tried many different varietals and styles of wine and my line of questioning became more precise: "What makes Coonawarra Cabernet smell like eucalyptus? And why does it taste so different from a Cabernet from Margaret River?"

A multitude of environmental elements come together, each one playing a part in how the wine grapes grow and, more importantly, how they will taste when they finally reach your glass.

Above all, what I've learned through asking these questions is that everything starts in the vineyard.

In this educational video, our Wine Advisor explains the role that viticulture plays in bringing you your favourite drop.
