Welcome to Wine Tasting Events!

Marc Anthony once said, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.”

 Wine IS what I love. It’s been my passion now for more than 15 years. Because I’ve dedicated many years to perfecting my nose, palate and ability to pick up certain notes in all types of wines, I’ve become a teacher of the craft.

Over the years as I became more passionate about finding the best wineries and wines, I wanted to share these tastes and experiences with the world. So I created a one-of-a-kind website featuring extraordinary wines. That website and store still exists today: www.topaustralianwines.com.au

Yet, when I first began… nothing happened. I tried everything to make my website stand out in the cutthroat wine industry. But NOTHING worked! How was I supposed to compete with huge retail chains and the hundreds of online retailers?

Here was the problem: Most Australian wine drinkers stick with what they know. So as a specialist boutique wine seller who promotes small vineyards, how could I convince people to buy different wines?

I knew they had to TASTE my wines first. Only then would they be convinced.

That’s when I had an epiphany! Why not bring wine and food enthusiasts together! They could learn about and taste new wines while enjoying fine cuisine! That’s when Wine Tasting Events was born.

My first event had 90 people booked! It sold out 3 weeks prior. After just a few events (and after I got over my fear of public speaking) bottles started flying off the shelves!

Over the years, these Wine Tasting Events have become a massive success. Today I consider myself one of the luckiest people in the world. Not only do I get to spend my time in the craft that I love, I’m privileged to help people learn more about good wine and pair it with good cuisine.

I invite you to attend one of our upcoming Wine Tasting Events. Bring your friends or family. Not only will you be served an assortment of fine foods… not only will you taste several of my hand-picked favourite wines… not only will you learn all about these wines and even “judge them” yourself… it’s an event you’ll never forget!

Check out our Upcoming Events here to learn more. Of course, because you’ll be savouring several glasses of wine, we do encourage you to arrange safe transportation in advance.

We look forward to serving you soon!

In addition to my love for wine, I also love cats. I have a 15-year-old Bengal named Phoenix. Sadly, I lost my Bengal named Caesar and my Birman named Zeus in 2015.
