Interesting collaboration between Daniel Ricciardo and St Hugo to launch his new label - DR3.


Such a nice guy, had no idea he’s into wine.

I'd probably sooner Dan's wine than Kylie Minogue's "Summer in a Bottle" Rose.
Kylie is apparently working on expanding her wine line to include whites and sparkling. I think I'll give them a miss.

Penfolds California Collection – a tale of two countries | Club Oenologique
Reads quite differently to the JO article, which from memory I interpreted as the wines feeling quite forced - Penfolds not understanding the Napa tannins and forcing the Penfolds mantra into everything.

Mr Ponting was lucky to receive 41 bottles of Penfolds Grange upon his retirement from Cricket Australia, representing a bottle for every test match century he made during his career, of that vintage, so in 1998 he scored 600 so received six bottles of ‘98; then scored 500 in ‘99 so received five bottles, and so on.

Wine Australia are launching a connect platform for international trade. The launch webinar was just uploaded, hosted by Mike Bennie. Seems to have quite a few names onboard. Have not seen it yet but it may be worth a watch
