Yeringberg 1863 - 2013

Yeringberg 1863 - 2013 from ALF on Vimeo.

This is a short preview of a film photographer Adrian Lander and I are making about Yeringberg, an historic winery and vineyard in the Yarra Valley, celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2013: the clip starts with a painting of vintage at Yeringberg in 1875.
Third generation vigneron Guill de Pury tells the story of how his grandfather established one of the Yarra's grand 19th century wine estates; of how the young Guill grew up surrounded by history and memories after the original vineyard had been pulled out; and why in the late 1960s he re planted vines on the site his grandfather had chosen, and started making wine at Yeringberg again.
Original music by Dave Newington.
- This preview was put together to accompany a feature story on Yeringberg in the Aug/Sep issue of Gourmet Traveller WINE Magazine.

  2. Sip from your glass slowly without making noise. Hold the sip of wine in your mouth for a few seconds before you swallow as this helps the taste buds get the full flavor and you do not have to swallow the wine to actually taste it. When it comes to wine tasting, the object is to taste the wine, not just gulp it as you would other beverages. You may also choose to swill and spit into a spittoon, this is an acceptable method of tasting wine, and in fact is a preferred method amongst the more experienced wine taster.
