Goodbye Len Evans


We were all saddened yesterday to hear of the death of Len Evans. He was an inspirational person who was known as "The Godfather of The Australian Wine Industry". It is generally agreed that he did more than anyone else to raise the profile of Australian wine.

I was fortunate enough to meet Len on a couple of occasions and even in the short time I was with him you couldn't fail to be charmed by his wit, style and sheer passion for wine.

He died on August 17th in Newcastle, New South Wales.

We'll all raise a glass or two in memory of a great man.
