Rob Hicks historic wine research

Wine educator/communicator extraordinaire Rob Hicks is now on the ground sniffing out the Granite Belt's best wines to include in an historic tasting in Brisbane next week.

In collaboration with Sommeliers Queensland, the highly regarded Hicks will present dozens of wines in a blind tasting in Brisbane for this august group.  Amongst the selection will be the Granite Belt's finest... which will titillate and test the palates of the State's top sommeliers to see how well they know what Hicks describes as the industry's best kept secret. This tasting of Granite Belt wines (embedded amongst international bottles) is a first for Sommeliers Queensland and is generating a bit of chatter in the twittersphere.

Helping plan his road trip through Granite Belt wineries this week is Anissa Williams, the incoming Director of Marketing for Granite Belt Wine and Tourism.
