About greatwineblog

meHey Brother Pour the Wine!

I’m a Sydney based Wine Writer who enjoys drinking, collecting and chatting about wine. This blog recommends a great wine or two to you every week.

I also write about wine stories and wine makers. Wine is more than just booze. There’s passion, culture and history as well as grape juice in the glass. Understanding the background to a wine, will take your enjoyment to another level.

 I write wine features for magazines including Gourmet Traveller WINE, Halliday Wine Companion Magazine, Your Margaret River Region Magazine, Marque, Found and PRIMOLife. I was nominated as a Finalist for the New Wine Writer of the Year Award 2016 run by the WCA and Gourmet Traveller WINE.

Blog posts get about 1500 readers a week across linkedin, instagram, facebook and twitter. If you enjoy what you read: like it, follow it, share it, comment with your own views on wine and life.

I quote the recommended retail price (RRP) for wines in Australian dollars. Due to the competitive nature of wine retailing, if you shop around you may find these wines for 10-15% less than their RRP. Happy hunting!

This website is proudly independent. I simply write about wines that I would recommend to others. I am very happy to receive samples and publish reviews of wines that I like. To contact regarding samples please email fergalgleeson@gmail.com in the first instance.
