The latest issue of Kanebridge Quarterly has just landed and we’re celebrating city living. From the best luxury apartments hitting the market to incredible houses transformed by the clever use of passive solar design, we showcase how city living in Australia is evolving and the challenges ahead to reach ever higher standards of living.

We kick off this issue with our story on the internationally recognised cool neighbourhoods in Sydney and Melbourne. They’re nowhere near the water, so what makes them so special? And how can you spot the next fashionable suburb?  If you’re more about life’s little luxuries, check out our story on the rise of the apartment concierge — and where you can get in on the action. NSW Building Commissioner David Chandler also shares his vision for the construction of multi-residential projects, making builders more accountable than ever and bringing confidence back to the market.

In the Money section, as more homeowners feel the pinch amid stubbornly high interest rates, we look at ways to keep money in your pocket without the belt tightening, at least not much. Plus, we explore the world of investing in gems and jewellery, talking to the experts about what pieces truly appreciate in value. If you’re looking at where to get the best returns on your investments, we can point you in the right direction, from bricks and mortar, the cryptocurrencies (yes, they’re back), gold and more.

Lifestyle lovers will enjoy drawing back the curtain on some of the best designed homes in Australia, including a house in Melbourne that doesn’t need heating in winter. Plus, we drop in on Singapore designer Gabriel Tan, who moved his family to Portugal in the middle of COVID. And speaking of people on the move, our travel section looks at the growing market for solo travellers, and the travel companies catering to their interests.

It’s a packed issue, perfect for dipping into and taking away truly useful information. Get ready to invest in your best life.

Sparkling wine flows as Australian winemaker takes out top international award

An Australian winemaker has taken out the top prize for sparkling wine at the International Wine Challenge, the first time a local winemaker has done so. It marks just the second time in the competition’s 40-year history that the award has gone to a winemaker outside France’s Champagne region.

Tasmanian-based House of Arras’ chief winemaker, Ed Carr, was presented with the award for Sparkling Winemaker of the Year at a special ceremony in London earlier this week.

“I’m incredibly honoured to be named this year’s Sparkling Winemaker of the Year. It’s a challenge to describe the feeling, but I’m proud to be recognised amongst my peers for such a significant international award,” Mr Carr said.

The IWC is considered one of the world’s most rigorous and impartial wine competitions. This year, France topped the medal tally with 72 gold, 394 silver and 455 bronze medals – extending their haul by 84 more wins than last year.  

The 40-year-old competition is considered one of the most influential events in the winemaking calendar.

Australian winemakers took out second place, with 54 gold, 250 silver and 154 bronze medals. Australia also won 19 trophies, 10 of which went to South Australia.

House of Arras also received the Australian Sparkling Trophy for its 2014 House of Arras Blanc de Blancs, as well as two gold and six silver medals.

Tasmania’s cool climate and soil make it ideal for producing world-class sparkling wine says Ed Carr (pictured).

Mr Carr said Tasmania’s cool climate and terroir were equal to the world’s best sparkling wine regions. The wins follow a strong showing this year at Australia’s National Wine Show and the Decanter World Wine Awards, where House of Arras also collected awards.

“2024 has been an outstanding year on the awards front, and I’m honoured to add this recent recognition from the International Wine Challenge to the mantle,” he said.
