Keenly anticipated each year by winemakers, collectors and wine lovers, the Halliday Wine Companion is recognised as the industry benchmark for Australian wine. The 2017 edition has been completely revised to bring you up-to-the-minute information.

In his inimitable style, Halliday shares his extensive knowledge of wine through detailed tasting notes, each with vintage-specific ratings and advice on optimal drinking as well as each wine's closure, alcohol content and price. He provides information about the wineries, winemakers and other important details such as vineyard sizes, opening times, contact details and website addresses.

About the Author

A respected wine critic and vigneron, James Halliday is an unmatched authority on every aspect of the Australian wine industry and can be compared to the likes of Hugh Johnson, Robert Parker and Jancis Robinson. His winemaking has led him to sojourns in Bordeaux and Burgundy, and he has had a long career as an international wine judge.

In 1995 he received the Australian wine industry's ultimate accolade, the Maurice O'Shea Award, and in 2010 he was made a Member of the Order of Australia.

      Comprehensive, broad regional coverage, a miracle of inclusiveness with brilliant notes that are hugely informative. Introductory sections on vintage, climate and future developments most thoughtful. Overall - totally professional and an indispensible reference!
