This year we will be embarking on a tour of the worlds wine region.
Episode 1 - South Australia
When you think of Australian wine, what comes to mind? Full-bodied fruit bomb Shiraz and Oak-drenched Chardonnay, which conquered the UK in the eighties? Sunshine in a glass compared to the drier reds and slightly more austere styles from Europe, mostly France in the UK market, before this time.
Episode 2 - Australia (Part 2)
Welcome back to our wine tour where we continue to explore the fantastic variety of wine regions Australia has to offer from Western Australia to Victoria and on to New South Wales.
Episode 3 - New Zealand
Welcome back to our third blog of our Wine School Tour of the worlds wine regions where today we jump across the water from last week’s Australia to explore the many regions New Zealand has to offer. From the very top of the North Island to the bottom of the South Island, we will cover New Zealand’s most well-known areas like Marlborough and Hawkes Bay, all the way down to the lesser-known areas such as Nelson, Waikato, and Waiheke Island.
Episode 4 - South Africa (Part 1)
Welcome back to the fourth instalment of our blogs series that accompanies the Wine School Tour of the worlds wine regions, where today we start to look at the wine regions of South Africa. In part one, we look at a bit of the history of wine in the rainbow nation as well as explore the West Coast regions that include Swartland, Constantia and Stellenbosch.
Episode 5 - South Africa (Part 2)
Welcome back to our wine school blog and can you believe it’s the 5th episode already! Today we finish off what we started last time by covering the remaining few areas of South Africa’s wine regions as well as other important information we feel you should know about the countries wine industry.

Episode 9 - USA
This week I wanted to start with a quick look at the history of winemaking in the USA – previously we saw that vines were first introduced by the Missionaries across the whole of the American continent in the 17th Century and that there was a later wave of new vines and winemaking during the gold rush in California in the 19th century.
