The Future Makers: Australian Wines for the 21st Century
Max Allen has been writing about wine in Australia for almost 20 years. He is the wine columnist for The Weekend Australian Magazine, wine editor for Australian Gourmet Traveller magazine, and a regular contributor to consumer and trade magazines such as Gourmet Traveller Wine in Australia and Wine and Spirits in the USA.
Max is in Adelaide to promote his new book ‘The Future Makers: Australian Wines for the 21st Century’. He will be joined by well known Australian wine identity Peter Leske in a lively debate about the future of the wine industry in Australia. Topics will range from biodynamics in viticulture to climate change and water to alternative wine shows.
Max also publishes an independent, critical guide to biodynamics in Australian vineyards – www.redwhiteandgreen.com.au – as well as a blog – realaustralianwines.blogspot.com. In September 2007, Max launched The Wine Map of Victoria, a comprehensive, detailed overview of the State’s 20-plus wine regions and subregions. In 2010 this has been joined by The Wine Map of Australia: www.australianwinemaps.com.
