Come watch Australia’s celebrity chef Matt Moran join Colin on his adventures around Australia’s wine regions. This time Colin swoops back through his old stomping grounds in Adelaide before Matt and himself take off to Kangaroo Island on a small plane to visit Greg Follet from False Cape Vineyards.
After checking out the local vineyards they went off for a bit of island adventure, yet this time it was not just the usual extreme sport. They decide to dive into some sharky waters where WINERAM Co-Director and Trained Diver Rupert Critchley says “it was the most dodgy dive he had done in his life”. With limited visibility, smashing surf, Matt, Colin and Greg have a blast diving and come out of it with not only their lives but also with some fresh seafood to have Matt school Colin in the kitchen during a fun cook off back at their cabin.
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.
