You might be surprised to know that the UK is actually the number one export market for Australian wine, so in the lead-up to Australia Day, host David Kermode talks to one of the country’s top winemakers, Larry Cherubino, the Director of Winemaking at Robert Oatley about why the UK loves wine from down under. The pair cover what it’s like to work in the Aussie vineyard, the drawn-out process of grape-growing and the brand’s famous Chardonnay.

They’re also joined by one of Robert Oatley’s brand ambassadors, Katie Macauley, to discuss some of the brand’s best bottles.
