Halliday magazine

Halliday magazine offers a uniquely approachable take on wine, food and travel. It’s published six times a year and available in print and digitally for Halliday Wine Companion members.

The magazine features articles by James Halliday (who better to explain what to look for in wine than the great man himself?), the most sought-after wine reviews (100 new-release tasting notes in every issue), travel features through the great wine regions of the world, plus amazing recipes and wine matches. 

Issue #49 – on sale from Thursday, November 14

Notes from the editor:


This edition, one of the most exciting themes that turned up was the prominence of female authorities. These include top Sydney wine director Amanda Yallop in our My Cellar section, a profile on WA winemaker Kate Morgan, and the back page featuring Melbourne sommelier Penelope Vine (and yes, that is her real name). Many other great women feature in the various stories throughout, but perhaps the best thing about this is it was entirely unplanned.


Each issue, we set out to talk to the most informed and inspiring people across the wine industry, representing a range of states and territories. This time, these savvy operators were simply the people we called on for their insights. We love the idea that this edition – which not only brings 2019 to a close, but also this decade – reflects a much bigger shift happening right across the industry.


The other key themes in here, which were indeed planned and intended, are on all things festive and summer-inspired. Even if you don't love the festive season, we hope this edition gets you excited about warm-weather catch-ups over great wine and food, and perhaps also kickstarts some holiday planning – we challenge you to turn to our story on Sardinia and resist wanderlust setting in.


Whether you're into Champagne or rosé, refreshing international wines, a new breed of Coonawarra styles or you just want to steal other people's ideas as your own, this issue will see you through to the new year in style.
