Leader of the Wine Studies Network at the University of Newcastle, Dr McIntyre's research for the book Hunter Wine: a history, stemmed from an ARC linkage scheme funded project Vines, Wine and Identity: The Hunter Valley NSW and Changing Australian Taste. The project culminated in an exhibition at Newcastle Museum last year which detailed the history of the Hunter Valley from 1828, as featured in the below video.
