The Big Fortified Tasting (BFT) is the world’s largest wine fair that is solely dedicated to fortified wines. Held annually in London, this trade tasting showcases fortified wines from across the world.

Wine Australia will be exhibiting at the Big Fortified Tasting, pouring a selection of fortified wines from different regions across Australia.

Fortified wines are among Australia’s most unique and interesting wines, and until the 1960s this category accounted for 80% of the Australian wine industry. Nowadays it’s a small but really compelling part of the Australian wine offering.

The BFT is your chance to try Australia’s incredible range of Muscat, Topaque, Vintage and Old Vine fortified wines and discover their intensity, complexity and ageing ability.

We’ll be showing wines from the following producers:

Chambers Rosewood, Rutherglen

d’Arenberg, McLaren Vale

De Bortoli Wines, Yarra Valley

Morris of Rutherglen, Rutherglen

Pfeiffer Wines, Rutherglen

Talijancich Wines, Swan Valley

If you are in the trade and would like to attend the tasting, please register on the BFT website.
