Steve Wiblin and the liquid poetry of Erin Eyes wines

James Halliday writes about Steve Wiblin and Erin Eyes Wines for Wine Companion Magazine and the Weekend Australian:

“For most of us, keeping a sense of humour, laced with optimism, would be impossible if we found ourselves in Steve Wiblin’s shoes.  In conversations and email exchanges I said I would endeavour to frame his story from the glass half full perspective.  His response was brief: “Understand; a glass should never be anywhere near empty!”

A poetic streak also runs through his makeup.  The opening paragraph of  his background information to his winery explains “In 1842 my English convict forebear John Wiblin gazed into a pair of Erin eyes.  That gaze changed our family make-up and history forever.  In the Irish-influenced Clare Valley what else would I call my wines but Erin Eyes?”
