Following last month’s celebrations of the world’s 50 best restaurants, it’s time to narrow our focus and look to our homegrown champions in food and wine; especially wine. Aussie Wine Month has arrived to help fill your May with quality drops, an arrival marked earlier this week with a intimate feast at Sydney’s highly regarded Bentley, where the restaurant’s sommelier Nick Hildebrandt and Taras Ochota of Adelaide Hills’ ochota barrels went head-to-head with a friendly wine pairing competition for each course (Everyone won in the end because two different pairings of top Australian wines per course is way better than just one pairing, we’d say.) The celebratory dinner was the perfect teaser of what’s to come over the next few weeks. With events being held across all of Australia, our antipodean craft will be championed through masterclasses, workshops and tastings from major cities, to regional wine havens....
