Australian Wines

Australian Wines

 by: Chris Burd

Australias wine industry has boomed in the past ten years. Employers have had to triple their staff numbers to cope with the demand for Aussie wine. Considering the lower average national population of Australia, compared to say the United States or even South Africa, 30,000 (2001) workers is pretty high.

One of the main reasons for the demand on this skillful industry is that it has won an international reputation for quality and value. Australian wines have won many highly sought after international awards and labels and many innovative Australian winemakers are sought internationally for their wine making expertise.

Wine regions throughout Australia have continually had high ratings especially over the past four years. Most of these regions and especially the East and South coasts (New South Wales and Victoria) are averaging 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. Second to the brilliant winemakers, and a close second, is the great climates / weather that certain regions have for cultivating vines.

Wine is very much a part of the Australian way of life, closely associated with both business and leisure. Wine consumption is often linked to the country's outdoor-oriented lifestyle as well as to the cosmopolitan urban way of life of the bulk of the Australian population.

Australia exports more wine than that that is sold domestically. Out of a total of approximately 919 million litres bottled, 516.5 million litres is exported. The largest export market has been the United Kingdom and second has been the United States.

Researchers from the University College London have come up with a few very interesting facts. They found that drinking alcohol (including wine), even in small amounts, might be associated with higher cognitive ability, especially for women. You would be silly not to have a drop every night! I think Aussie are reasonably bright, it must be all the great wine they produce.

Rose Sales Top White Wine Sales in France

Sat, 23 Aug 2008 12:47:00 PDT
This article in the UK's Telegraph newspaper talks about how Rose wine has become so popular in France it now outsells white wine. That's quite an achievement. If anything should convince skeptics to try pink wine, this is it. As the article points out, it's the dry and sophisticated roses that have accounted for this surge in sales, not the sweet (or more likely, sweetened) "blush" wines that have given pink wine a bad name in this country. The trend to drink rose wine seems to have not hit th

Fun with Food

Ilya and Belsum pointed out this interesting Omnivores’ 100 foodie list that’s making the rounds. It was pretty interesting to skim through - I think of myself as a fairly gourmet eater, but these suggestions point out just how limited my American tastes are. I’ve tried 51 of the 100 - which isn’t even a D grade on the epicurean scale. One observation on the items: many of the international and ethnic foods are fairly well respected within their culture of origin, e.g. caviar, fried plantain,

Nando and Will Ch. 03

Chapter 3: Deadly Desires Nando and Will rode tiredly into Rancho des Caballos. It had only been a few weeks since Will had begun to recover from his illness and lately a few at his uncle’s ranch had started suffering with stomach sickness. Rather than risk Will’s still fragile health, it had been decided he should stay with Don Carlos. Nando had taken on extra work firstly due to Will’s incapacity and latterly because of other workers being sick and consequently had become unintentionally sha
