Time is an essential element of each glass of wine that we drink. Within moments of it being poured from a bottle, or when a barrel is exposed to air, wine begins to change in subtle and irreversible ways.
At the other end of the temporal scale, the bedrock of the vineyard landscapes that grow the grapes to make this wine were formed over millennia past. From the deep past to the current moment, this book shows how historical influences and technological processes have shaped Hunter wine from vine to glass.
Co-author of Hunter Wine: a history, Dr Julie McIntyre will talk about the Hunter wine industry from 1828 through six generations uncovering the historical and technological developments that have culminated in today’s thriving local community.
