Wine Australia has teamed up with the Australian Women in Wine Awards (AWIWA) to host the 2017 awards in London. As part of the event, Wine Australia will host a consumer tasting on 26 September between 6:30pm – 9pm in the Exhibition Hall of Australia House.
This unique event – the first of its kind – gives consumers the rare opportunity to meet Australia’s most prominent women in wine, taste their wines and hear their stories. It will be the world’s largest gathering of Australian women winemakers and winery principals.
Over 50 female winemakers and winery principals will be showcasing their wines and demonstrating the quality, diversity and innovation of Australian wine. Of these 50 winemakers we convinced the super talented but very humble Sue Trott of Five Geese to attend.
The line-up ranges from some of the country’s most iconic winemakers (and of course Sue Trott of Five Geese is under this category) to the most pioneering new kids on the block grouped into seven categories. These stars only rarely come to the UK en-masse, and having so many of them under one roof is a first.
The tasting includes bubbles and canapes, a welcome by Alexander Downer, the Australian High Commissioner to Britain, a panel discussion by MW Laura Jewell of Wine Australia.
