In October 2002 he was invited by Jamie Oliver to head up wine at Fifteen and to teach the subject to its students.
After five years in London, Matt returned home to Melbourne in December 2007. He’ll still be spending plenty of time in London and Europe, and will retain his involvement with Jamie as wine editor of jamieoliver.com and with the Fifteen Restaurant Group, overseeing each restaurants wine list.
Matt has a refreshing take on the industry and a knack for making wine simple. His first book Thirsty Work was awarded ‘Best Educational Wine Book UK’ at the 2005 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards and to date has been published in sixteen countries and ten languages.
October 2007 saw the publication of the third edition of his award winning annual wine guide The Juice 2008. 2008 will see the publication of two new books – Heard it through the Grapevine and the fourth edition of his annual wine guide The Juice 2009.
Matt also writes a monthly wine column for Waitrose Food Illustrated Magazine and a weekly wine column for Sunday Magazine (Sunday Herald Sun and The Sunday Telegraph).
Matt is really excited to be involved in a new TV project with best mate Tobie Puttock for LifeStyle FOOD. Matt and Tobie share good times, travel, food and wine across Europe in their stunningly photographed series, TOBIE & MATT.
His enthusiasm for wine is only surpassed by his dedication to encouraging people of all ages to feel more comfortable, passionate and enthusiastic about the subject.
Matt lives in Melbourne with his wife Carly and their young daughter Indi.

Cocktail is a party dress code that is used for all kinds of evening or after dark events. These events can be formal or informal depending on the situation so it's good to adjust your outfit to the formality and situation of the party you're attending. Cocktail dresses are knee length dresses that range from just above the knee to under the knee but it can also be tea length (just above the ankle) although we reccoment this only with a fitted dress. Cocktail attire can be in any fabric but it's good to adapt your dress to the formality of the party. Keep in mind that darker colors and fabrics like silk and satin give a more formal look than other colors and fabrics. We recommend going for a simple dress that you can glamour up with accessories. The main goal of this party dress code is that you have to look elegant so make sure that you'll pick out a dress that flatters your body shape.
