VIC: Geelong Region Exploration Day
Date: June 18, 2018#9:30 am-5:00 pm AEST
Wine Geelong invites Sommeliers Australia ‘Sommelier’ members to take a dive into the Geelong region and explore the diversity of wines, microclimates and sub-regions during this day-long immersion visit. Discover the complexity of Geelong and its sub-regions – Moorabool, Surf Coast and Bellarine.

At each stop local wineries from the respective sub-region have been invited to present a selection of wines they wish to champion in an informal environment. Lunch and refreshments are provided for the day along with guest speakers giving us valuable insights into the past, present and future of wine in Geelong.
