Author Name:Allen, Max


The Future Makers is a groundbreaking new work by wine writer Max Allen, set to redefine Australia's wine landscape for the new century. 
Faced with the unprecedented challenges of climate change, oversupply and global financial turmoil, many winemakers are beginning to think long-term, and in doing so are starting to better understand the unique relationship they have with their vine-growing land.
The Future Makers takes you around the country and introduces you to the areas and the people shaping Australia's wine future.
Regional chapters feature in-depth profiles of top winemakers - those who are upholding valuable traditions, those who are setting the standard for varietal wine quality and those who are at the cutting edge ofinnovation - plus tasting notes for all of their best wines.
Also included are detailed explanations of why a region's wines taste the way they do: a portrait of soils, climate, grape varieties and cultural influences that contribute to the singular qualities of Australia's diverse wine styles.
Throughout the book you'll find extended discussions of the controversies and debates moulding Australia's new wine tradition, and an exploration of the major issues and challenges facing Australia's grape growers and winemakers.
At the heart of The Future Makers is a celebration of the diversity, complexity and unmistakable flavour of Australia's wines.

Comment List (Total:2)

  •     Max is on the money with his understanding of time and place and how it affects what wine different regions produce. Great to see such appreciation for the terroir of Queensland's Granite Belt!
  •     Enjoyable if you are into Australian wine. It focuses on vineyards and winemakers using sustainable farming practices such as biodynamics but in the end becomes a bit of a list of winemakers around the country adopting these practices, with a bit of a blurb on each. I'd give it 3 1/2 if I could give half stars
