|Andrew Nielsen - Le Grappin|
Wanderlust! The early history of (white settlement in) Australia is full of the legends of intrepid explorers, of those seeking new frontiers and pushing new boundaries. The modern inception of that is OE, the beloved Overseas Experience.
Winemakers are no exception. Seeking inspiration from classic wines made overseas, drinking them in copious amounts too. And then there are those winemakers who take the time to make wines overseas, either on a permanent basis, to undertake vintage or just produce something under their own name elsewhere.
Can you see where this is heading....? So, pop Tuesday 17th February in your diaries...as Swirl Sniff Spit heads off for a bit of OE (passport not required).
