Experience the diversity and evolution of Australian wine at Wine Australia’s Alternative Varieties Tasting.
Over the last two decades, there’s been a surge in plantings of alternative varieties. Mediterranean varieties like Fiano and Tempranillo as well as more unusual varieties like Assrytiko and Saperavi are finding a second home and unique expression in Australia.
Thanks to pioneering winemakers and with 65 different wine regions, Australia offers a diverse range of grape varieties and wine styles.
The tasting will feature around 120 wines from over 30 producers. Aglianico, Barbera, Cabernet Franc, Dolcetto, Friulano, Gruner Veltliner, Montepulciano, Nero d'Avola, Roussanne, Sangiovese and Tempranillo are just some of the varieties in the line-up.
