February 4th to 7th 2018
Melbourne & Sydney
A long way off, but Riesling is never far from our mind. Riesling Downunder 2018 follows a hugely successful and enjoyable event back in 2015. This international celebration of the noble grape will grip Australia from Sunday 4th to Wednesday, 7th February 2018 inclusive. Something for everyone, trade professionals and general public alike – a sense of taste is all you need.
It kicks off with the Riesling Riot tasting for the general public in Melbourne, and concludes with the same event in Sydney a few days later. In between, there’ll be Melbourne masterclasses, lunches and dinners centred upon beautiful Riesling and those who grow it. The event, spearheaded by Frankland Estate and their co-sponsors Pikes and Jim Barry, will involve all our Aussie and Kiwi rizz whizz kids, while European guests flying over include Dönnhoff, Georg Breuer, Gunderloch, Dr Loosen, Heymann-Löwenstein,
Koehler-Ruprecht, Wittmann, A. Christmann, Paul Blanck and F.X. Pichler.
