By Colin West
The first episode of the 8 part series “WINERAM Australia“, Colin leaves his cellar-hand winemaking position in the Barossa Valley to hit the road and tour all the wine regions Australia has to offer. First stop is the Strathbogie Ranges with winemaker Matt Fowles of Fowles Wines! Matt is renown for some forward thinking labels “Are you game” and “Ladies who shoot their lunch”.
WINERAM Productions is a relatively young company with an equally young and energetic entrepreneur behind the name, that guy is Colin West. He first got into the wine industry at the young age of 18, yet being from the USA it was illegal for him to pursue his passion, so he flew to Italy. After deciding the wine industry would be the one and only career path for himself, he enrolled in a wine course in Tuscany where he studied underneath Diletta Frescobaldi of the Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi wine family. Since this experience with the Frescobaldi family in Italy, he knew he had found his calling with an area that he could use his business experience in, yet that also included an industry full of passion, history, and even art and science.
