Nick Ryan Wine Professional


A Distinctive Voice in the World of Wine

Thrown out of university in Adelaide and moving to Sydney, Nick Ryan used the knowledge he’d gained raiding his old man’s cellar to land a job with one of Sydney’s leading wine merchants. Realising writing about it was easier than lifting it has led him to where he is now.

He is the senior wine writer for The Australian and a columnist for The World of Fine Wine, a contributor to Halliday Magazine and The Robb Report, a highly experienced wine show judge and an in-demand presenter at wine events around the world.

Now based in the Clare Valley, Nick is excited by wines that are just as interesting by the fourth glass as they are at the first and would give it all up to play one game for the Port Adelaide Football Club.
