The Australian’s Max Allen has joined Fairfax Media as The Australian Financial Review‘s new drinks writer.
Allen will pen a weekly column on drinks for the Financial Review’s Life & Leisure section (published Fridays), together with a monthly column for The Australian Financial Review Magazine.
With a brief to cover everything from wine and beer to spirits and other beverages, from both a consumer and business perspective, Allen will also write occasional features across the paper and magazines, and will work closely with the newspaper’s food writer Jill Dupleix on events including the Financial Review’s Australia’s Top Restaurants Awards, to be held this year in June.
Allen has been writing about wine and other drinks for 25 years. He is a columnist for Australian Gourmet Traveller and Gourmet Traveller Wine, and is the Australian correspondent for jancisrobinson.com. Until recently he was a columnist for The Australian.
