In 1978 when Winestate Magazine began it was to set the benchmark for other industry publications to try and match.
Several decades later, many of those other publications have been and gone while Winestate has remained and is the leading independent Wine Magazine in Australia.
Going back a over 30 years, Australia had 171 wine and brandy producers. It was not impossible for a serious taster to get to know most of them. Today, Australia has more than 1,800 wineries. That’s more than ten times as many. This is why we at Winestate Publishing employ informative quality journalists and feature columnists who are knowledgeable in the goings on of each particular wine region. They give our publications an array of credible and interesting articles on upcoming events, personality profiles, new and old wineries, cellar doors and restaurants and other interesting and informative topics all in an easy to read format.
We have a number of different publications particularly tailored to suit different market segments:
• Winestate Magazine
• The Wine & Spirit Insider
• Winestate On-line
