    WHAT IS THE WINE FRONT

    The WINEFRONT has been a leading wine review and information site since 2002. It was the first of its kind in Australia and remains the most active. It is unbiased, unaligned, rigorously independent, realistic and fair. We cover Australian wine principally but we extend coverage across the wider world of wine. We taste in a global context, and call things as we see them. The WINEFRONT is run by Campbell Mattinson, Gary Walsh and Mike Bennie. A full history of reviews and articles is available to subscribers via the WINE SEARCH tab.

    We at The Wine Front acknowledge the Traditional Custodians, and Elders past, present and future, of the lands on which I\we work and live, and further acknowledge, thank and pay respect to the Traditional Custodians of the land of the multitude of Aboriginal countries across Australia from which so much of our work emerges from.
