How an Australian winemaker turned America onto wine

2020 has had many of us buying, and drinking, wine. A lot. Mostly consuming at home, sometimes in parks, and, now that things are opening up here in Canada, wineries when we’re feeling fancy.

We’re blessed here in Toronto to have a few wine regions just outside the city. I visited a few last weekend for a friend’s birthday. Whilst chatting with a sommelier, he spoke of recent renovations to their two-hundred year old winery to position it as more accessible and less pretentious than their stuffy neighbours.
