Dr. Max Lake - Wine Icon

And so the legends pass....

Last Friday saw the passing of one of Australias wine legends, Dr. Max Lake. Max started up Hunter Valleys most recognised labels Lake’s Folly way back in 1963, and was the creator of ‘The Aussie Blend’; Cabernets, Shiraz, Merlot, and other Bordeaux blends.
I was fortunate to meet max while I was working at Como Wines. Max loved nothing more than sharing his views about two of the loves of his life – food and wine, and the pleasure that these two flavours derive.
In Max’s ‘Food and Wine Flavour’, he opens with ‘Life is dull and grey without the pleasures of the shared table.’ How true this is.
Here’s cheers to you Max!!!
