Australia’s longest running wine guide showcases the best Australia has to offer.

Now in its 34th Edition, Australian Wine Vintages (also known as ‘The Gold Book’) is the essential guide to discovering the best local wines this year, no matter the price point or your level of wine knowledge. Written by Rob Geddes MW, it provides detailed tasting notes of over 3500 wines from Australian and New Zealand in print, and over 13,500 in the App.

Empowering wine buyers by demystifying the experience, Rob Geddes showcases the top 10% of Australian wineries that are proven consistent to drink, cellar and invest. With over 100 new wineries and 1000 new wines included in this edition, the book includes past vintage details for those who are cellaring or trading back vintages, as well as a guide to the various wine varieties and regions so you know what to look for.

The Gold star list recognises the most consistent high quality wines in Australia, with an annual list of the top 100 wines tasted.

Accompanied by a panel of experts from other Master of Wine recipients, Sommeliers, major retail buyers and winemakers, all of the wines featured are tasted independently and objectively.

Suitable for both newbies and seasoned collectors, the 34th edition of Australian Wine Vintages is a trusted companion for exploring wine country or your local bottle shop.
