1 Year Anniversary

1 year ago, Perth Wine Enthusiast was born and it has been an interesting journey. I have been pleasantly surprised with the response so far. Almost 500 likes over on Facebook. Just ticked over 6,000 individual views here and I have just started on twitter. A big thank you to all of you who have been reading my posts, interacting and seeing what I have been getting up to.

PWE Card

Since starting, 145 individual wine notes have been published, along with many more wines quickly reviewed in the 16 group tastings / dinner parties I have attended.

Through PWE, I have met many interesting people who love wine, work in wine and write about wine. Perfect to be able to indulge in a bit of wine geek chat. The wine century challenge I set up at the beginning of the year is ticking along nicely, with 42 different grape varieties tried so far. Hoping to get up to 70 by year’s end.

What am I drinking tonight to celebrate? Nothing… woke up this morning with a sore throat. Hoping it clears up soon so I can crack into something decent.

Through my facebook page, can I encourage all of you to share your wine pictures and general thoughts? Think it will be great to see what everyone else is up to.

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.


  1. Congratulations PWE! Looking forward to plenty more posts from you 🙂

  2. Congrats! Sorry to hear that you need to give your throat a break. I’m sure you’ll make up for it.
