NEW BOOK: Halliday Wine Companion 2022

by | Aug 23, 2021 | Golf Resorts

With many golf resorts, outstanding courses and interesting regional courses in and around the famous wine regions of this country, there is an even stronger connection between the two topics in Australia than anywhere else in the world.

That makes the Halliday Wine Companion 2022 a wonderful addition to any golfer’s bookshelf.

Considered the wine bible of Australia and the industry benchmark, the Halliday Wine Companion contains the comprehensive list of the best Australian wines and wineries with full tasting notes for 3,280 top drops and 1,252 profiles of their producers.

TO THE RIGHT: The Halliday Wine Companion 2022 is available now. Published by Hardie Grant Books.

For the first time, the wines were evaluated jointly by the entire tasting team. The namesake of the book title, James Halliday, together with editor-in-chief Tyson Stelzer and a team of six experienced tasters, have concentrated on individual regional specialties in addition to the alphabetically listed wineries, which are rated according to Halliday’s 5-star system. The top products from each winery are listed by rank in their section of the publication.

In contrast to previous years, the winners were determined during a two-day event in which the jury tried the shortlisted wines again to determine the winners, while the jury’s favorite wines were given a new heart symbol.

With all of that and more, Halliday offers Wine Companion 2022, backed by – the most popular wine website in the country – and the Wine Companion Magazine and app, a must for golf enthusiasts.

Whether you’re planning your next trip to get the most out of the wine and golf world, looking for the perfect drop to enjoy your time on the golf course, or just expanding your knowledge to impress your playing partners, the Halliday Wine Companion 2022 should be high on your list and makes a wonderful gift for the wine lover in your elevator.

The book is another example of the marriage of wine and golf, an excellent blend that Halliday himself would certainly give five stars.
