A compact and easy-to-navigate newcomer to the Halliday Wine stable, the Halliday Pocket Wine Companion distils key elements of the annual guide, curating a best of the best both by value and ratings across the country's key wine regions. While value can be difficult to define with wine, it's a big part of the decision when it comes to choosing a bottle. Here we've put it front and centre by only featuring the wineries and wines with special value ratings from the Wine Companion 2021.

James Halliday is recognised as Australia's most respected wine critic, and his annual guide is considered the industry benchmark for Australian wine. The Halliday Pocket Wine Companion gives wine lovers access to his insights in a small package that is easy to read, use and carry. It includes tasting notes, ratings and advice on best-by drinking. Just as with the full guide, it is a compelling proposition for self and gift purchasers.
