The A+ Australian Wine Celebration is the country’s biggest festival of the grape organised by Wine Australia, the national wine industry’s statutory body. There is close to 100 events registered, so there is something for everyone.
Keen wine lovers can try their hand at winemaking when the Hunter Valley’s Brokenwood hosts Winemaker for a Day, have a go at crafting wine barrels at Yalumba in the Barossa Valley, or sample pre-release wines and meet the winemaker at Vasse Felix in the Margaret River. There are also incredible food and wine festivals, plus wine and food degustation dinners spread throughout the nation.
With a cavalcade of events from Sydney to Strathbogie Ranges, Melbourne to Margaret River and Barossa Valley to Brisbane, this is the perfect opportunity for Australians to get out and enjoy the best of Australian wine from world-renowned wineries, winemakers and regions.
Wine Australia Regional Director, Aaron Brasher, said the support for the inaugural A+ Australian Wine Celebration had been overwhelming from the industry.
“Many wineries have created experiences especially for the Celebration, such as behind the scenes tours, others are flinging open their cellar doors and offering incredible deals, and we have some of Australia’s best food and wine festivals registered as part of this national event,” Brasher said.
“The celebration is all about showcasing Australian wine to the nation and what better way to do that than to have people try the wines and meet the people behind the labels.”
