We brought the largest ever group of Australian winemakers and brands to the USA, who travelled from the East Coast to the West Coast from Sept 19 to October 3.

Go beyond the glass with the passionate winemakers who are doing things their own way and learn how this ancient continent is producing wines that are leading the world.

As part of this unprecedented trade event, Wine Australia launched two new interactive components across all cities, the Australian Wine Discovered (AWD) lounge - an up-close look at Wine Australia’s award-winning free education program. Hosted by Christy Frank, the AWD lounge was the place to go to hear all about the program and the free downloadable tools and resources available. 

In select cities, the Made Our Way Theater featured 30-minute seminars incorporated incredible Australian wine stories in a non-traditional setting.
