Description

A GLASSFUL OF WINE WORDS

A talk by Michael Hince from Hince on Wine

The early 1960s saw the emergence of table wine and the genesis of Australia's modern wine industry. This heralded the birth of contemporary wine writing and vinous literature in the guise of pamphlets, books and magazines.

The likes of Walter Senior James, Oscar Mendelsohn, Dan Murphy, Len Evans and latterly James Halliday helped popularise table wine. Now today's social media has spawned a plethora of wine bloggers. So much so there is almost as much written about wine as there are wine labels!

Wine writer, broadcaster and historian Michael Hince takes a look at wine in print from the late 1950's to today in its various guises. From the birth of The Australian Gourmet and The Epicurean magazines in 1966 and classic books like Walter James's The Gadding Vine (1955) and Sam Benwell's Journey to Wine in Victoria (1960) through to current writing by the likes of James Halliday, David Dunstan and Max Allen.

So if you have a nose for wine, enjoy an odd glass or two and like reading about wine and gastronomy, you will enjoy this fascinating glimpse into Australian wine in print.

A very interesting and enjoyable presentation on the history of Australian wine writing, given in the tasting room at Armadale Cellars, and accompanied by delicious chicken sandwiches and a glass of Chardonnay. Michael Hince's encyclopaedic knowledge of and enormous enthusiasm for his subject shine through.

Very informative talk. It was amazingly interesting to hear about the mavericks that kick started the wine culture outside of France, through their words and actions. Michael's depth and breadth of knowledge in the area is astounding. Mrs Hince's sandwiches washed down with a glass of Fat and Sassy also helped make for a pleasant afternoon.

A very pleasant event and most informative. Even though I thought I was reasonable well informed, Michael taught me a lot about Australian's Wine Industry. I will definitely attend another event like this again.
