Australia has thousands of wineries, dotted throughout 65 wine regions. Its unique climate and vast landscape produces an incredibly diverse range of wine, which can be seen in more than 100 different grape varieties. Australian winemakers are proud innovators, with the freedom to make high quality, bold wine, their own way. The 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 – and what makes these winemakers tick – at the Australia Trade Tasting, which will take place in Dublin’s Mansion House this coming Wednesday January 30, 2019. Meet the people behind the wines, hear their stories and try a diverse range of Australian wine. Trade can get up-to-date with the category, taste new releases and new styles.
Pouring its wines for the first time 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 also include Levantine Hill, showcasing premium cool climate styles from the Yarra Valley, and McWilliam’s Wines, with its six generations of family winemaking, sharing the unique Hunter Valley Semillon.
