[QLD] Australia’s Emerging Varieties: A Masterclass
Date: November 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
*Due to WSET exams in late October, this masterclass will now be held on Monday 11 November*
“It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the most responsive to change.”
Charles Darwin, Naturalist
The Australian wine landscape has been through many changes over recent years. Not only are local producers exploring and working in the most celebrated international wine regions, but climate change is undeniably being experienced on a global scale, modifying the characteristics of many wine regions.
Join Sommeliers Australia’s panellists David Bone (Cuttings Wine) and Penny Grant (Group Sommelier, Ghanem Group) as they look at and discuss wines from a selection of Australian producers with extensive knowledge of non-traditional or ’emerging’ varieties thriving in an Australian climate: Crittenden, Chalmers, Konpira Maru, La Linea, Nick Spencer Wines, S.C. Pannell.
This masterclass aims to showcase the potential of Italian, Greek, Spanish and other traditionally European varieties in the Australian environment, rather than compare local examples to their European counterparts. Although we don’t mind them at all!
Sommeliers Australia Members – $10 + booking fee
Non-Members – $25 + booking fee
