He's finally gonna be here!  We met Hugh at the Harvard Club tasting last year, and struck up a fun conversation about "odd" varietals.  Among other things, we came to learn that he makes a Saperavi - the staple of the Georgian wine industry - and says that's it's one of the wackiest and tastiest thing you'll ever taste out of the McLaren Vale!  Though it doesn't stop there.  Hugh crafts delicious Shiraz, Cabernet and Chardonnay from his estate in Southern Australia and he'll be sharing all of it with you on Saturday, September 22!

This lineup will round out the Trilogy of Aussie Tastings this month!  You've had the chance to meet Iain Riggs of Brokenwood, Aaron Ridgway of Negociants U.S.A., and now it's Hugh's turn.  Check out the link for more info.  http://www.hamiltonwines.com.au/
