Opinions

A watery encounter

An enjoyable dinner at Sydney restaurant Kensington Street Social recently was marred by the fact that my group was charged for tap water.

Vintage matters

I get frustrated when I see a sweeping disclaimer on the bottom of a wine list simply stating that ‘vintages are subject to change’.

To declare or not

Wine-Searcher featured a story by James Lawrence suggesting that Dom Pérignon is devaluing their brand currency by declaring too many vintages.

Cellar therapy

I’ve just spent two days re-packing my cellar. It was getting impossible to move in there.

Prissy Prosecco

I question the use of sub-standard imported wines when local wines can offer better value.
