Practical wine information for those who could know better.


awash is the blog of the Amateur Wine Appreciation Society of Hawthorn, founded by yours truly on 12 March 2013.


First wine shop: Thresher The Tything, Worcester. 1995 and a wee snip of a lad!

awash has 2 principle raisons d’être.

Firstly to get everyone’s appreciation of wine up to a standard that they (and their audience!) is happy with.  Secondly to promote the sharing of wine and our collective knowledge, for the benefit of all.  That may be via the blog, Facebook page or even in person, if you happen to live near Melbourne’s Hawthorn.

With several years in wine retail in the UK, and a Grade A Level 3 Higher Wine Certificate from London’s Wine & Spirit Education Trust, I’m no MW but am here to help and hope you find this blog a useful resource.
