Thanks to SmartyHost for including my blog amongst the finalists in their search for Australia’s Best Blog. Over five hundred blogs were judged for the contest and to make it to the final eleven was exciting (and unexpected).

If you are a new visitor, then welcome. As an introduction, the About page talks about some of the things that I’m looking to achieve with this blog. Aside from that, you can view stories and tasting notes on specific regions via the Categories section on the right hand side or just browse through all the previous pages via the links at the bottom of each page.

Please feel free to email me or leave a comment with any questions, suggestions or general feedback that you have for the site. We are working on some exciting features for the near future and I hope that you’ll continue to visit and enjoy.

I think that my prize for reaching the final eleven consists of some hosting services, so it looks like Appellation Australia is finally getting its own domain name. Suggestions for the domain name would be welcomed, has already been registered. Perhaps a name change for the site is in order as well.

As for the grand prize of $10,000 for the overall winner Singing Bridges, well, there is always next year!

  1. Well done mate and congrats on the top ten finish!!

    All the best


  2. Congrats on making the finals! Don’t even think about using wine garage in your new name or the emails from the lawyer’s office will arrive shortly! Seriously, some abreviation of Appellation Australia would work. Shorter the better.

  5. Thanks for all your kind comments, much nicer than some of the stuff I’ve seen out there that has been said about the finalists!


    Opened a Clover Hill Sparkling 2001 from Tasmania. Should have a review for that up once I’ve finished typing these 200 odd Riesling scores from last month.
