Matt Irwin lives and breathes Wine Everyday.
With boundless energy, his passion and enthusiasm for Wine is evident to all who meet him.
Matt is currently pursuing the Master of Wine to cap off his many wine qualifications. He was awarded Dux of Sydney Wine Academy in 2019 when he completed the notoriously difficult WSET Diploma. As a WSET Certified Educator he has taught hundreds of Students throughout Sydney and passed on his love of wine through education.
As an Italian Wine Specialist who has imported and sold Italian Wines for 13 years, he even met his wife in Venice and they gave their daughter the middle name of 'Venezia"
He is currently working as a Teacher at Sydney Wine Academy teaching both the WSET and Wine Scholar Guild Programs and continue to import and distribute Italian Wines for Trembath & Taylor throughout New South Wales.
Some career highlights include visiting Vinitaly in Verona 6 times, being an Associate Judge at the NSW Wine Awards in 2019, travelling through Burgundy and Northern Rhone with his young family in 2018, picking chardonnay grapes at Elbourne Wines "Grace Vineyard" in 2020, and being the first person to export wines from Arizona anywhere in the world.
Matt has visited Wine Regions all over the world including Tuscany, Piedmont, Sicily, Sardinia, Veneto, Burgundy, Champagne, Northern Rhone, Mosel, California, Okanagan Valley, Hunter Valley, Mornington Peninsular, Margaret River, Adelaide Hills, Orange and even the Granite Belt in QLD. Wine, Food and Travel are the greatest pleasures on the planet. Let him bring them all into the comfort of your own home.
I’ve learned an incredible amount and greatly appreciated Matt's humorous and engaging style of communication. It made such a difference and inspired me to continue learning about wine.
Matt's humourous and engaging style made the evening so much fun while learning so much about wine and tasting.
