In Vino Veritas : In Vino Veritas Preview
renowned winemakers from Beringer Blass to launch Greg Norman Estates. Our commitment to superior quality has been rewarded with critical acclaim, competition recognition, and market success. These factors, and my abiding appreciation and enjoyment of California wine, have led me to my newest venture, Greg Norman California Estates. Without realizing it, the foundation for my new California wines was established many years ago. I am very fortunate to take something that I am passionate about, something that is both a business and a hobby, and expand to a geographic area that I have grown very fond of over the years. From the very beginning, I have made it the goal of Greg Norman Estates to over-deliver from both a quality and a value perspective. I believe that every bottle of my wine delivers on that promise. Greg's Wine Preferences appreciation of a good bottle of wine back in in Europe. I would frequently enjoy a bottle of wine with dinner and since I was playing a great deal of golf in France at the time, we favored French wine. While in Australia, I did try many Aussie wines, but they were not nearly as popular as they are today. I drank Californian wine very infrequently, as I was not a regular in the States. Now, however, it seems all I drink are varietals from Australia or California, as I tend to enjoy their qualities better than wines from other countries. One of my favorite wines is the Australian Reserve Shiraz. It has such a pronounced but not overbearing, and a hint of blueberry. Zinfandel is also a personal favorite, and the new Lake County Zinfandel has the spicy, red fruit character style that I particularly enjoy. Only after many years of experimenting with wines from all over the world have I come to understand the characteristics that I most enjoy. In my Chardonnays, I prefer a less dry, less heavy California and Australian Chardonnays possess this quality. For this reason, I wanted the style of my new Santa Barbara County Chardonnay many foods. Many people assume that I prefer Australian wine above all others, because that is where Greg Norman Estates originated, but it isn't true. For me it depends on the situation, menu choice and mood. I am more of a casual wine drinker, rather than an intense wine connoisseur, and therefore I drink whatever wine I have a desire for at that moment." 8 FEATURE: GREG NORMAN Vintage Golf Club Hunter Valley, Australia The Glades Queensland, Australia National Golf Club (Moonah Course) Melbourne, Australia Height: Weight: Birthday: Birthplace: Queensland, Australia Turned Professional: Joined PGA Tour: GREG NORMAN "THE GREAT WHITE SHARK" Gold Australia Available at leading Newsagencies or by Subscription at www.golfaustralia.com.au CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: 91 Career International and Others) 2001 World Golf Hall of Fame Inductee 2-time 5-time Byron Nelson Award winner for the lowest adjusted scoring average by the PGA Tour 3-time Vardon Trophy winner for the America 3-time Arnold Palmer Award winner 1995 Jack Nicklaus Award winner PGA Tour Player of the Year 1995 PGA Player of the Year Award winner PGA of America's top PGA Tour player Held No. 1 World Ranking for 331 8 More info: www.shark.com
