Wine...collecting, drinking, cellars and corks Entertainment and Hobbies

    I've done a search, no one seems to be talking about wine...being an Aussie it's pretty easy to collect and indulge the interest extensively......................................
    .............................................................................. Anyone interested in learning about Australian wines or know about them? I have a fairly extensive cellar which is for drinking not investing and I love visiting the wineries and chatting to the disconcertingly unknowledgable mother of the winemaker who's doing cellar door as a favour...does that ever happen in the Napa Valley?............................................................................................................................
    We also have the Stelvin vs. cork debate raging here...ok, not really raging like a theological debate in Constantinople in 600AD, but sometimes people get spittle collecting unnoticed in the corners of their mouths when they talk about putting vintage port under Stelvin (invented in Australia apparently) - I mean are we buying wine for our great-great grandchildren?

    I've got a pretty good "drinking" collection too and like the Aussie Shiraz & Cab/Sav in recent years. Just enjoyed a couple of bottles of "Stella" which has a fun label and my guests walked around imitating the Streetcar players. love to learn more, I'm a novice
