The sixth episode of WINERAM Australia takes Colin down to the island state of Tasmania. Just south of Victoria, good ol’ “Tassy” is stock full of wildlife, wildnerness, adventure opportunities and great wine! Colin visits the Tamar Valley in a sub region known as Pipers River that houses a winery called Bay of Fires with it’s sister brand House of Arras. Their sparkling winemaker is Ed Carr, someone who is world famous for producing high quality new world sparkling wines. Watch this episode as they go flyfishing, check out how great sparkling wine can be outside of Champagne, and then Colin decides to end his island-experience with the scariest excurison he has ever done in his life.
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.
