Wolf Blass Wines is undoubtedly one of the most iconic and acclaimed brands in Australian wine.
The company conceived by German immigrant Wolfgang Blass in 1966 has received more than 10,000 medals and trophies globally.
We’re joined this episode by chief winemaker Chris Hatcher, who has been with Wolf Blass since 1987 and has played an integral role in the continued evolution of its wines.
This is a special episode of the Drinks Adventures podcast, produced with the support of Wolf Blass Wines.
