A Good Nose and Great Legs
Wine is a living and changing expression of life itself. It has a birth, it reflects the places it is raised, it matures in its making and declines with time. Wandering through the art and science that makes the delectable drop, you will find a rich tapestry of human existence revealed. Robert Geddes is one of the few Australian-born Masters of Wine and has studied, drunk and slept in some of the world's most famous vineyards. A Good Nose and Great Legs is his comprehensive and engaging guide to Australian and international wine culture and lifestyle. With chapters ranging from the history of wine, wine making, varieties, regions, tasting and buying wine to food matching, it is bursting with interesting information and insights.
After starting his wine industry career in the vineyards of the Clare Valley, South Australia, in the1970s, Rob was only the third Australian to become a Master of Wine. He has over 25 years experience in the wine industry as an educator, broadcaster, researcher and marketer.
