  • RIP Becky Wasserman
A Farewell to Becky Wasserman, Burgundy sage
Bindi's Michael Dhillon reflects on his time with Becky Wasserman whilst working for Paul de Burgh-Day (one of Australia's early wine importers, whose company became International Fine Wines and Bibendum under Robert Walters)



FWIW George Samios was on radio doing his weekly spot this morn and was quite strong in his views that Wynns 2019 Black Label just released in their best ever vintage.

Suggestions of suitable alternate bottles to display? The BB on Magician was just a quick grab - Art Deco lady clearly requires black and gold bott and it needs to be a quality wine as it will consumed before display - same as musicians bott

Just came across this concept from a friend - https://blockbar.com/.

Interesting distribution/sales channel, with what I see as like a WineArk storage/trading/provenance program tacked on. Very much dependant on trust as to the legitimacy of the company and the provenance chain is broken as soon as the product is withdrawn - apparently some big partnerships already.

Coming soon to a vinomofo dealer near you

After sampling a couple of Max's wines and using them as backup lawnmower fuel, I think these imports might just get the whipper snipper cutting all the hedges just identically.
No thanks Penfolds.
