Drink Seminar: (R)Evolutionary Australia

Drink Seminar: (R)Evolutionary Australia


Presenter: Jason Yamasaki

Australia has a rich winemaking history that has contributed to an exciting evolution of styles, regions and varieties. Besides Italy, Australia is the only place on earth where Italian grapes thrive. But it doesn't stop there.  French winemakers consider the land Down Under to be their only rival for producing the world's best Chardonnay.  The oldest Grenache vines in the world are found in Australia. And Shiraz? The only thing to debate is which of Australia’s 65 wine regions produces your favourite.  Jason Yamasaki leads this tasting of wines from across Australia that illustrate why it's arguably the most diverse winegrowing country in the world.
