- the $8 million Far From Ordinary campaign in the USA
- a record presence at major China trade shows (including Country of Honour at Vinexpo Hong Kong 2019)
- the Australian Wine Discovered education program
- a consumer website (in English and Simplified Chinese) for global consumers seeking the latest information about Australian wine, and
- a gallery of high-quality content that captures Australian wine regions and the people behind our wine.
