Noted wine writer, broadcaster and historian Michael Hince, known as the velvety voice of vino, brings a wealth of knowledge and entertainment to 1179 AM Vision Australia Radio Melbourne every week with Heard it Through the Grapevine – broadcast every Saturday at 8.00 pm, repeated on Tuesday evenings at 8.30pm, or it can also be heard via podcast. Heard it Through the Grapevine also goes to air nationally to over 1.5 million listeners via the Community Radio Network.
In another life he was also a restaurant and wine reviewer and contributor to the Age, The Age Good Food Guide, the Weekly Times, Business Review Weekly and the Herald Sun. He has edited a number of wine trade magazines, including the Wine and Spirit Review, and is a former editor of The Epicurean magazine, the first quality Australian magazine devoted entirely to food and wine. The Epicurean had a considerable influence on later food and wine writing. It was published from May 1966 to 1993 and was noted for its wonderfully quirky front covers designed by Les Mason.
Michael also hosts regular illustrated talks about the history of Australian Wine in Print.
