It helps break the ice at the beginning of my meeting with Australia’s formidable first Master of Wine, who also received an Order of Australia for contributions to the Australian Wine Industry. In addition, Hill Smith is a Cordon Bleu-trained chef and restaurateur, wine judge, wine writer and co-owner of two vineyards.
