Barossa Discovery master class

Wine Australia is working with Barossa Grape and Wine Association, to present a master class on Barossa wine in Guangzhou.

The theme of the master class is ‘Barossa Discovery’, to introduce the emerging and exciting wineries of Barossa. The master classes intend to showcase emerging, perhaps lesser-known but still world-class wines to China industry insiders, in the hope that Chinese consumers will continue to be offered even more choices of high quality and diversity when they purchase Barossa wine.

Wine Australia will invite 100 guests to attend the master class, including wine media, educators, key opinion leaders, food service professionals, sommeliers, retail buyers, and a small portion of importers and distributors.
