Aussie winemakers: masterfully experimental

Just in case you weren’t aware of it already, Australia has thousands of wineries dotted throughout its 65 wine regions.  

This unique climate and vast landscape produce an incredibly diverse range of wine which can be seen in more than 100 different grape varieties.

Australian winemakers are also proud innovators with the freedom to make high quality bold wine their own way. These wines express the passion and diversity of the people who craft them and the regional characteristics of their origins.

Find out what makes Aussie wine unique at the Australia Trade Tasting in Dublin next year. Meet the people behind the wines, hear their stories and try a diverse range of Australian wine on the 30th January 2019 from 1pm to 5pm in The Round Room at The Mansion House in Dublin’s Dawson Street.

Trade visitors can get up-to-date with the category, taste new releases and new styles.

Pouring their wines for the first time, for example, is Patritti. Third generation family member James Mungall and winemaker Ben Heide craft traditional and alternative varietal wines from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills.

Attending producers include Levantine Hill showcasing premium cool climate styles from the Yarra Valley and McWilliam’s Wines, with six generations of family winemaking, sharing their unique Hunter Valley Semillon.

The 250-wine tasting is also enhanced by a master class on the McLaren Vale and a ‘Women in Wine’ focus area featuring wines from legends and emerging stars as well as a free-pour focus table.
