Halliday Pocket Wine Companion 2022: The 2022 Guide to Australia's Best Value Wines
James Halliday

A compact and easy-to-navigate newcomer to the Halliday Wine stable, the 'Halliday Pocket Wine Companion' distils key elements of the annual guide, curating a best of the best both by value and ratings across the country’s key wine regions. While value can be difficult to define with wine, it’s a big part of the decision when it comes to choosing a bottle. Here, we’ve put it front and centre by only featuring the wineries and wines with special value ratings from the Wine Companion 2022.

James Halliday is recognised as Australia’s most respected wine critic, and his annual guide is considered the industry benchmark for Australian wine. The 'Halliday Pocket Wine Companion' gives wine lovers access to his insights in a small package that is easy to read, use and carry. It includes tasting notes, ratings and advice on best-by drinking. Just as with the full guide, it is a compelling proposition for self and gift purchasers.

About the Author:

James Halliday is an unmatched authority on every aspect of the Australian wine industry and can be compared to the likes of Hugh Johnson, Robert Parker and Jancis Robinson. His winemaking has led him to sojourns in Bordeaux and Burgundy, and he has had a long career as an international wine judge. In 1995 he received the Australian wine industry’s ultimate accolade, the Maurice O’Shea Award, and in 2010 he was made a Member of the Order of Australia.

For the 2022 guides, James has worked alongside Tyson Stelzer, in the role of chief editor, and an expanded team of tasters, who each focus on specific wine regions for the first time.
