“The food we were given was no more than eatable, but the patron was not mean about drink; he allowed us two litres of wine a day each, knowing that if a plongeur is not given two litres he will steal three.”

- George Orwell, Down and Out in Paris and London


I knew there was a reason I liked George Orwell and two liters is my kind of ration when it comes to wine- that is why I like Australia.  Australia is the only country that I have visited where they offered us beer after every wine tasting, Coopers was the brew of choice and it is so refreshing to have a beer after drinking a lot of red wine, especially Australian Shiraz.
After this first trip down under I fell in love with Australian wines and have been selling and collecting wines from Australia for over 25 years now.  With the bottom falling out of the market in 2008 we have struggled to sell some of the higher end brands that were developed in the 1990's but that is no problem because I am happy to drink these wines as they are some of the best examples of the Syrah/Shiraz varietal on the face of the earth. 
Although they have been making wine in Australia for a long time, we are still in our beginning stages of our scientific process of tasting through the top wines from the land down under that are reaching their peak years of maturity.  That is why we made this an annual event- there is a lot of research that needs to be done on the subject of vintage Australian Shiraz.  Will they age like the great wines of France, Italy and even California?  This year we have a collection of some of the oldest Aussie wines we have ever shown going back to the 1983 vintage! 
Chef Toni Lampasone will be providing a special menu to accompany the tasting wines and the fee for this tasting which includes dinner is $295 per person + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail
