Blog 50: Max Allen talks up Southern Italian Varietals in the Weekend Australian



I agree with Max Allen in his recent article in the Weekend Australian- there is a Southern Italian wine grape revolution sweeping across Australia- and we are very happy to be a part of it with our Vermentino and Fiano.

You may have already heard me rave on about these varieties and their adaptation to the hot weather extremes we can sometimes see in South Australia. Max agrees. He also talks about some of the new releases from Chalmers wines- awesome producers and the family who made it possible for all of us to now be enjoying these Southern Italian varietals, by importing the cuttings in the first place!

Corrina picking the 2008 Fiano- middle of a heatwave and the fruit looks awesome!
