RAY'S WINE GUIDE 2017
Ray Jordan, Jeni Port and Ken Gargett Reviews
Ray Jordon is one of Western Australia’s leading wine writers. Originally trained as a lawyer, although we still love him, Ray first wrote for Winestate in the 1970’s and hosted his own show on Western Australian radio for 3 years. These days Ray writes two weekly columns for The West Australian but is probably best known for his authoritative annual guide to Western Australian wine, which is always worth a look. Ray has judged at the Swan Valley Wine Show, the Barossa Wine Show, the Perth Hills Wines Show, the Geographe Wine Show and the Sheraton Wine Awards, was a winner of the WA Wine Press Club wine writing award and in 2006 was awarded the George Mulgrue Award for his extensive contribution to the WA wine industry.
