The Halliday Wine Companion 2019 is recognised as the industry benchmark for Australian wine. The 2019 edition has been completely revised to bring you up-to-the-minute information. In his inimitable style, James Halliday shares his extensive knowledge of wine through detailed tasting notes with points, price, value symbol and advice on best-by drinking, as well as each wine’s closure and alcohol content. He provides information about wineries and winemakers, including vineyard sizes, opening times and contact details.

Varietal Wines In this revised and expanded edition of the original landmark volume, James Halliday situates Australian grape varieties and varietal wines in an international context. Profiling 140 wine grapes, covering classic, second tier and alternative varieties, Varietal Wines provides the most comprehensive survey of the varieties currently grown and made in Australia, including detailed information on the characteristics of each variety and wine, the diversity of regional styles, the best producers, and production statistics from Australia and around the world.

A Life in Wine There is no aspect of the Australian wine industry that remains untouched by the hand of James Halliday. Join James as he recounts the events and people that have shaped his forty-year career, including his early beginnings as an assistant in a London brewery and the back-breaking labour required to establish two award-winning wineries. This unique memoir is not just a journey through the life of Australia’s most respected wine critic and vigneron, but also through the story of wine in Australia.

About the Author

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.
