Follow Colin West on his final adventure across Australia in the eighth and last episode of the wonderful Wineram Australia video series.
By Colin West
Even in his journey from Adelaide, SA to the wine region of Margaret River in WA he has to go all the way across the desert that holds the ‘longest straight road in the world’, camping by night, seeing wedge tailed eagles, dingos, lizards, roos and all of AUS wildlife. Finally before his arrival to Margaret River he does a rose wine tasting over one of the few PINK LAKES in the world.
The arrival to Margaret River has him meeting Josh Palmateer, a local professional surfer who shows him the surf culture in this amazing beach town and then the two of them go see Matthew Byrne at Evans and Tate Winery to learn more about their local wines and trellis systems before ending this series caving on the Indian Ocean!
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.
