“I’ve become a premium Halliday member to gather more information and hope I can find out more about any variable weather conditions during the vintages we’re tasting as I prepare –only one factor of course but one I’m trying to use as a variable. I must say your newsletter has been very useful and provides very good information for those of us trying to learn more about wine.“

– Dr E. Stacey

“Love it .. now that I've figured out how to log in ! Very handy for a quick check on a new wine that I might want to buy/try .. or a wine that's been sitting in my cupboard. The wine regions "Vintage Chart" is also very helpful when buying new wines .. a quick glance can give some idea of the potential quality.”
