“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

GRANGE BOOK WINS GONG IN NEW YORK

Eighteen months down the word-and-wine mine and Whitey and Milton hit silver! 

Join us to celebrate at the final public chat forum of Tasting Australia in Town Square (Victoria Square, Adelaide) at 5pm on Saturday, May 3. We'll show and discuss our book, sign copies, give a bottle of Grange away, and ponder the possibility of another Australian wine ever gaining such fame.

We'll also award a signed copy of our  book to the person who asks the best question on the day.

Hoping to see you there!
