“In the modern idiom, this book is a compelling page-turner. David Dunstan’s immense knowledge is presented lucidly, the copious illustrations are brilliantly inserted into the text, and the design, print face and paper quality of the highest order. Anyone with a love of fine wine or of our colonial history should have this book; if your love extends to both you must have it.”

– James Halliday AM

“It has been a great year for books that bring Australia's rich wine history to life in words and - importantly - never-before-seen archival pictures.

More than just a list of members, committees, presidents and luncheons, this book puts the story of of just one association into a wider historical context of wine, culture, politics, changing tastes and fashions in Australia, from the beginning of the century, when the society was founded, to the present day.”

– Max Allen, The Australian, 12 November 2013
