Hi All
Just a general question.
I very rarely see any wines from the USA available for sale in Australia.
Does anybody know of a retailer that does have a good selection?
If not does anyone know why we don’t get many to choose from here? Is it just too expensive to import or is there a general lack of interest

Curious to hear other’s thoughts as I genuinely enjoy a lot of the West Coast wines.

I also enjoy some nice west coasters - particularly Russian River Zins!

Just looked up Hobart's 'specialty' wine place and it had a single zinfandel from Oregon, but did have a number of South American wines.

I dare say the exchange rate has a lot to do with the lack of USA wines, plus their styles are comparable to Australia's (as opposed to much of Europe etc).
