Simone Mad­den-Grey


Simone takes us to Wai­heke Is­land, NZ ( p50) Any sur­prises on your visit to Wai­heke Is­land?

I hadn’t re­alised how much you can es­cape the hus­tle and bus­tle there. It was so easy to en­joy the lo­cal wine and views, and slip into the re­laxed vibe. But it’s very hard to leave!

Which wines are you lov­ing right now?

I’m en­joy­ing bub­bles, rosé and also chilled reds from the Yarra Val­ley. I’m look­ing for­ward to lighter, crisper styles for spring.

Sarah Hewer


Sarah trav­elled to the Great South­ern re­gion to shoot for

our fea­ture ( p66) What was the high­light of your trip to the Great South­ern re­gion? As with ev­ery trip to the Great South­ern, the op­por­tu­nity to eat Amy Hamil­ton’s food at Lib­erte in Al­bany was a high­light.

Do you have a favourite wine from this re­gion? An­drew Hoadley, take my money! I love Das Sakri­leg by La Vi­o­letta.
