Are our wine lists too trendy?

Wine ListA very interesting conversation has been playing out over the last couple of weeks about the nature of wine lists in Australia’s fine dining establishments.

Huon Hooke’s article kicked off the debate, followed by a response from the industry group, Sommeliers Australia.

Both have valid points, but the only thing that really matters is what the patrons of  said restaurants think?   Do you think there are enough Aussie wines on Australian wine lists? Do you think those that are Aussie are a good representation of our industries breadth and scope?  Do you find wine lists confusing or do you enjoy the opportunity to be taken on a vinous journey by a wine professional?

Big questions and I’d love to know what people think?
