“The Future Makers is a ground-breaking new work by award-winning wine writer Max Allen that sets out to redefine Australian wine for the 21st century.
Faced with the unprecedented challenges of climate change, oversupply and global financial turmoil, Australia’s best grape growers and winemakers are changing the way they think about what they do.
The Future Makers takes you on an adventure through Australia’s remarkably diverse winegrowing regions and introduces you to these people – the newcomers and old-timers, the artisans and entrepreneurs, the ratbags, larrikins and dreamers putting the heart and soul back into Australian wine
Each regional chapter features in-depth profiles of the most inspirational growers and winemakers; portraits of the soil, climate and cultural influences that make their vineyards special; and evocative tasting notes for their best wines. Throughout the book you’ll also find discussions of the important issues and controversies buzzing through the wine community as it forges its future.”
