You don’t have to be Warren Buffet to know that Forbes magazine is pitched at a mostly  US-based business clientele. And hopefully some are lovers of alternative red wines.

Curious US-based wine writer Cathrine Todd has investigated what she sees as the next cult trend in global wines – dried-grape  wines. Her research soon found the FREEMAN dried grape portfolio – FREEMAN Secco Rondinella Corvina and FREEMAN Robusta (100% Corvina) – from faraway Hilltops, NSW.

The flagship FREEMAN Secco is made from Australia’s only plantings of corvina and rondinella grapes. They also discussed how to best viticulturally manage  a definitive drought year.
