Halliday Magazine

Halliday magazine offers a uniquely approachable take on wine, food and travel.

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 and commercial editor Carlie Trotter. Together, Amelia, Casey and Carlie 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.

      Halliday Wine Companion magazine

    For anyone who loves wine, the dining experience is rarely complete without it. But how do you create that winning food and wine combination?

    Are you a stickler for rules who never strays from traditional pairings? Or do you throw caution to the wind and drink what you love, regardless of the dish? Whatever the case, there are some key elements that lie behind why certain matches work – and others do not. In addition to insights from award-winning sommelier and author Chris Morrison, we talk to wine people from venues around the country, who share their thoughts on the topic.  

    We also look at the food-friendly white wines that hail from the Rhone in France and hear how Australian producers are working with marsanne, roussanne and viognier in increasingly savvy ways. And for another variety that works brilliantly with so many foods, we shine a light on gamay. 

    Also in this issue you’ll find a tour of Tuscany, plus authentic dishes from the Italian region to recreate at home, and we talk to some of the Canberra District’s producers who are kicking goals, as well as winemaker and gin producer Andrew Marks from Victoria’s Yarra Valley. Throw in a look at what constitutes sustainability in winemaking, some international grenache inspiration and a chat to wine lover and former Wallaby David Lyons, and you have a heap of exciting wines to keep you busy over the coming months.

    Also in this issue, we have a handy travel-sized guide to some of Australia's best cellar doors. We hope the 52 wineries included in the Halliday Weekender provide plenty of inspiration for your next wine adventure.
