There's a secret behind each creation of great wine, the wine makers.

The art of wine making reaches far beyond the crushing or the ripening of grapes in large vineyards. It's the specific technique used by each wine producer that creates bold tasting Shiraz's and dynamic Pinot Noir's. There's much to take into account of how distinct wine can be.

Food and Wines' Ray Isle spent weeks traveling through the wine regions of Australia. On the way he stopped to talk to young, adventurous and innovative wine makers who are shifting from traditional classic wine making styles, to a more revolutionary and modern cutting-edge design.

The new age of Australian wine consists of the variation of reds and whites that are bold, daring, unique and what Isle calls " raised-by-wolves version."
