Two steps forward, and a step back...that seems to be the way it is going with the publication of Emerging Varietal Wines of Australia

I still hope to have the book published by the end of the year...and a launch in late January. We can have a nice evening with a few different wines at a Melbourne venue. I will give you the details soon.

The cover is done, its just the next 250 pages that are causing the problem. I have put a graphic of the cover up on the Vinodiversity Blog site. By the way that's the place to check out the latest news about Vinodiversity and related matters, so bookmark it.


Some Vinodiversity readers have been hanging out for the return of the Wine Variety Table, which has been temporarily out of print. Well, the good news is that it is now back to it's full glory. Can you really do without one of these?


Some new pages on Vinodiversity. I have started a major reload and extension of the Vinodiversity pages, both the pages dealing with varieties and the regional mini-guides. Some of the more recent pages are on

I've also built a page on Malbec There are lot's more to come.


You might check out the new Wine Gifts page where I have listed a few things you might like have, for someone else or even yourself. How about a Gruner Veltliner T-shirt? I will be rotating a few different offers through here, so you might like to bookmark it.
