About James Halliday
It was in 1979 in Australia that James Halliday A.M. (1938-) first started writing and publishing annually a definitive guide to Australian wines. He has become an Australian wine hero of our contemporary age. Today he is a well-respected wine critic and vigneron, whose witty informative style has assisted nationally in expanding an appreciation for wine, one of Australia’s most productive and successful industries since the end of World War II. He has helped to drive the wine industry in Australia’s success forward on the international market, for which he has been awarded the Order of Australia. His Australian Wine Atlas and Encyclopaedia are only two of the more than 56 books he has published about the wine industry in this country. His books have been translated into a number of other languages and published in the UK and USA as well.
