Now that she’s at the helm of the booze education organisation The Humble Tumbler, you could say she has one of the best jobs in existence. A healthy dose of drinking all sorts of good drinks, then researching, talking and writing about them, has put her fair and square among all the great people who make up Australia’s incredible liquor industry.
Clare writes and teaches the sake and wine programs for The Humble Tumbler. She grows grapes and helps to make the wine for her family’s label, Eminence Wines, and she consults on various wine lists, hosts corporate events and writes about wine. She divides her time between the family vineyard in the King Valley and inner-city Melbourne. Clare has aspirations for an immense cellar and can always be talked into another drink.
