Len Evans, AO. OBE, is a name synonymous with the Australian wine industry and someone still much missed by those involved and those who imbibe, around the country and beyond.

He penned much on the subject of wine and the world surrounding it including the exceptional books How  to Taste Wine and the more recently published Not My Memoirs.

VisitVineyards.com highly recommends both books for anyone interested in wine, its development or just keen on a great read (with many laughs included in the case of his non-memoirs!)

As a VisitVineyards.com subscriber you can save 15% and receive free delivery on either of these books or pay just $40 for both (with free delivery).

How to Taste Wine captures this complex subject with deceptive simplicity and based on Len Evans’ thesis that ‘that wine is to be enjoyed, and – like music and art – the more you know about it the more you can enjoy it’. One page alone covers the tasting technique; if we all remembered just that single page (21, for the curious), we’d be far better wine tasters.

Len Evans never wrote his memoirs as he didn’t like the idea, saying ‘For one reason, I am still living them’. He didn’t think his life was particularly interesting either, somewhat of a misconception if ever there was! What he did leave behind was something uniquely Evans – an anecdotal ramble through his life which was devoted to the promotion and enjoyment of wine. Not my Memoirs is a collection of anecdotes, stories and memories that encapsulate his life in the wine industry with wit and insight.

In the words of esteemed wine critic and author Hugh Johnson says 'In case of any doubt, it was Len Evans who showed Australians their own wines when they, and everyone else, were completely in the dark about them. The rise to fame and glory started at his table.’
