Win the Gold Book of wine

For lovers of Australian wine one of the enduring events on the calendar is the appearance each year of The Gold Book. This elegantly slim volume packs an extraordinary amount of information to help you enjoy your choice of glasses for the coming year.

Originally appearing in 1979 when the wine scene was arguably simpler, Australian Wine Vintages catalogued the majority of available wines with a guide to quality and how long to cellar.

The Gold Book This Magnificent LifeThe original man with the palate and the words was the elegant and erudite Jeremy Olivier who helped educate a generation of enthusiasts.

Over the years he provided succinct appraisals together with optimal drinking windows and prices of earlier vintages. Priceless!

The Gold Book This Magnificent Life

In the past few years the Book has been passed to the excellent hands (and palate) of Rob Geddes MW. (That’s Master of Wine of, whom there have ever been only 390 in the world!)

You can read tasting notes on 5000+ wines from 350 wineries, star ratings, retail price and much more. You can also read how to connect with the AWV app for much more detailed information.

The Gold Book should be on the shelf or in the cellar of every serious wine drinker.

And you could WIN one.
