Review Search has been in existence for 10 years, with over 4100 reviews and a number of articles that range from approaches to cellaring your wine through to feature articles on up and coming Australian wineries. I also write columns in a number of newspapers.

I was fortunate that my appreciation for wine started early; While at University and working as a waiter in a fine dining restaurant i became frustrated with providing mediocre, cliché and uninformed comments about the wine I was serving. I enlisted the help of a sommelier who helped provide the basics from which i have continued to train my palate through the enjoyment of some of Australia's greatest wines and extensive tutelage from Australian winemakers.

It is with great pleasure that i share my reviews and articles with you, and hope you get as much enjoyment reading them as i did creating them !

The wine reviewed on the site is from personal purchases, wine tasting events or samples provided by wineries, with reviews expressed on the site being independent and my own.
