Leonard Paul Evans AO OBE (31 August 1930 – 17 August 2006) was an English-born Australian promoter, maker, judge, taster, teacher and drinker of wine. The Oxford Companion to Wine writes that he did “more to advance the cause of wine in Australia than any other individual.”
Many consider him “the godfather of the Australian wine industry” and “Australia’s leading ambassador of wine.”
