Meet the Author

Graeme Lofts is the author of more than twenty-five books. After developing an interest in wine in his university days, Graeme’s fascination with wine began in earnest with a chance visit to Chateau Tahbilk (now Tahbilk) near Nagambie in Victoria. Since then he has been a ‘cellar door junkie’, traveling around Australia and enjoying the history and the stories as much as tasting the wine.

Graeme is an active member of the Victorian branch of the Wine Service Guild of Australia, an organization that was formed more than fifty years ago to provide access to information about wine to licensed grocers, restaurateurs and wine waiters as a time when Australian consumers knew little about table wines or the science and art of winemaking.
