Steve Pannell was born into one of Margaret River’s pioneering wineries, Moss Wood, but has chosen to follow his own path in McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hiils. Rightly regarded as a key figure in the modern Australian wine industry, he’s a brilliant, considered and stimulating conversationalist. Listen to us talk about the wonders of Grenache, why tannin is a good thing in red grapes and how he’s working to change perceptions of Australian wine.
