Andrew Thomas is a pretty engaging character and one of the finest exponents of semillon and shiraz in the Hunter Valley.
Now the gregarious Thomas is taking his show on the road for a series of lunches and dinners during May to mark the official launch of Thomas Wines range of 2016 shirazes.
"While all our 2016 shirazes are looking outstanding, the very limited quantities and cult following of Kiss Shiraz will ensure that it will be the talk of these events," says the man known to all and sundry as Thommo.
The tasting extravaganzas will feature 10 wines (including some back vintage Kiss - think 2006, and 2013 in magnum) paired with four courses prepared by talented chefs.
The Kiss and Tell Tour includes events in Melbourne, Brisbane, North Sydney, Sydney (sold out but they might put you on the wait list) and Pokolbin throughout May.
