The underwater wine tasting, very likely to be a world first, will feature in a South Australian episode of a wine, travel and adventure web series by Los Angeles-based WINERAM Productions.

The final episode is set in the Clare Valley at Jim Barry Wines as well as Port Lincoln.

Mr West and Mr Barry, from Jim Barry Wines, did the underwater wine tasting with Adventure Bay Charters on Wednesday.

While tasting a Jim Barry 2013 Lodge Hill Riesling, they came face to face with a five-metre long great white shark.

She hung around for quite some time while the men gave their reviews: "Great white wine with great white sharks!"
