Ever get tired of the misconceptions?  There are a bunch of  Aussie wines you see in America –vapid, boring stuff– but that’s not their good stuff. That’s like judging California on Two-Buck Chuck.  In this class, we delve into the great Aussie wine regions and a selection of our favorite chateaux.
