Langton's and James Halliday Announcement

Langton’s & James Halliday
Two voices of authority on the wines of the world

Langton’s, in its 30th anniversary year, is proud to announce an exclusive alliance with James to utilise his eminent knowledge to demystify the styles and wines of the world with comprehensive tasting notes and points from the man himself.

James Halliday is Australia’s undisputed ‘Mr Wine’. Nobody else comes close.

“James and the team at Langton's, share a passion for the great, the old, the rare and the oddities of wines from around the globe. We are excited that James will be sharing his unparalleled knowledge of these wines with our customers.”

- Jeremy Parham, Langton's General Manager

“I am delighted to take on an ambassador role at Langton’s and look forward to sharing my opinions on Burgundy and the great wine regions of the world and the wines coming from these regions.”

- James Halliday

James has commanded a public forum for his stylish and authoritative writing about wine since the late 1970s.

By ‘public’ we mean that Halliday’s weekly commentary has appeared over almost four decades in national, mainstream media, aiming at a wine-interested (but not wine-specialist) audience.

His Halliday Wine Companion Guide is the annual best-selling book of its kind in Australia, and his website, with its more than 100,000 tasting notes from thousands of wineries, is by far the country’s most comprehensive wine resource on any criterion you could think of.

Halliday is also a prolific author, having written or contributed to more than 70 books since he began in 1979.

He was a leading Australian wine judge for more than 30 years and trains younger judges through his involvement in the Len Evans Tutorial program (arguably the most exclusive wine school in the world). He has also judged extensively overseas.

Halliday is a historian of Australian wine and his legal background makes him an insightful commentator on the business of wine.

However, James legacy stretches beyond the shores of Australia and he is a highly respected commentator on the great wines of the world, including his favoured Burgundies.

While James' notes on Australian wines are prolific, his reviews of wines of the world are few and far between. Stay Tuned...
