Wine Geek Week Australia: The New Australia Grand Tasting
September 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present a special grand tasting celebrating the new, the unknown, and awesome wines coming out of Australia today. ONE OF THE MOST EYE-OPENING TASTINGS OF THE YEAR.
WINE GEEK WEEK AUSTRALIA: THE NEW AUSTRALIA GRAND TASTING
Goal of the event: To introduce you to dozens of producers that you’ve never heard of, that are new to the United States market, and represent the fresh young energy that is taking over winemaking down under. An incredible night of wines you’ve never had before.
Join us for the highlight event of Wine Geek Week Australia, as we present an amazing range of wines from the newest producers and the coolest styles and grapes varieties.
Don’t expect big jammy Shiraz. Many of these wines are polished, sleek, and lower alcohol than you’d expect.
