Matt Fowles is the man behind the Australian wine called Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch. In the video chat below, he discussed how to pair wines, including his shiraz and cabernet, with game and wild meats, especially those you hunt yourself as he does.
When did you develop your passion for hunting?
How is the taste of game and wild meat different from commercially raised meat? How does that affect the wine you pair with it?
How did you come up with the name Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch?
