Wine and Book Pairing: A Bigger Picture by Malcolm Turbull with a Wynns Cabernet

Wine and Book Pairing - A Bigger Picture by Malcolm Turnbull

Former Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, published an expansive autobiography that some MBA students find useful for its political and cultural insights as well as its weight. I’m told it makes a superb doorstopper in share houses.

When it comes to pairing this book with a wine, there are many options not least of which is to find a large bottle or magnum due to the length of the text.

However, it is the chapter on Malcolm’s involvement in the Australian Republican Movement that lends itself to some surprising insights along with a suggestive wine pairing.

This is because David Wynn, the man who helped forged Wynns Coonawarra Estate, was a staunch republican and one of the founders of the Australian Republican Movement.

With that in mind, my recommendation when reading A Bigger Picture is to start with the chapter about Republicanism while sipping a Wynns Old Vine Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, available from the school’s wine shop or in other liquor outlets.

You can taste this style of MBA Thinking for yourself, by signing up today to do A Lunchtime MBA during the 2021 Adelaide Fringe.
