Halliday Magazine

Halliday magazine offers a uniquely approachable take on wine, food and travel. Published six times a year and available in print and digitally for Halliday Members.

Published six times a year, the magazine features articles by James (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.

Our editor is Amelia Ball, a journalist with many years experience working in wine and liquor publishing. Amelia works alongside deputy editor Casey Warrener. Together, Amelia and Casey are able to indulge their passions for wine, food and travel, while telling the stories of the people and personalities who make the magic happen.

Issue #41 – on sale from Thursday, July 4

Do you ever tire of your go-to reds and wish someone would just hand you a list of top wines to try?

Halliday Magazine

This issue, we do exactly that, thanks to James Halliday and Campbell Mattinson each sharing their 25 standout reds. For this annual edition, James chooses wines priced over $30, while Campbell focuses on those $30 and under. This time though, just six of James' wines cost more than $40, with two coming in over $50, presenting what we think is our best-value Great Reds yet. Scour these wines to uncover your new favourites, from top Aussie pinot noir and shiraz to local tempranillo, malbec, sangiovese and beyond.

We also shine a light on cabernet sauvignon in this issue, and feature some lighter-style German and Austrian reds. We take a closer look at the star New South Wales wine region of Mudgee, as well as thriving Marlborough in New Zealand, plus report on some of the must-visit bars in Berlin. We also sit down with Kerri Thompson of Wines by KT in the Clare Valley to hear her approach to winemaking, as well as sommelier Jane Lopes, who heads up the wine side of celebrated Melbourne restaurant Attica.

As always, James Halliday shares 100 tasting notes up the back of the magazine, and our mini guide inside presents some of the latest and greatest white wines, covering a broad range of prices and styles from around the country. We hope it all leads you to a stack of new wines to enjoy with family and friends.
