There’s little that excites us more than (re)discovering a new wine region. This past year sommeliers Jane Lopes and Jon Ross helped us to rediscover Australia. The refined, balanced, and lighter expressions of wine represented in their new LEGEND Australia Wine Imports portfolio have challenged our assumptions about this New World landscape. Turns out there’s more to Australia than just jammy Shiraz. The blindfold has been removed.
For some, classic, Italian-grape wines from Australia seem a bit daggy (that’s Aussie speak for uncool.) But the truth is, there is history and passion for growing varieties like Vermentino, Greco, Muscat, Nebbiolo, Nero d’Avola, Sangiovese. Winemakers, sommeliers, and wine writers have been championing the match between these grapes and the Aussie terroir for years. And, their stories need to be told.
Join us for a night-in as we explore Italy in Victoria, Australia with Jane and Jon...and a surprise special guest. We’ll open a couple of bottles with these tastemakers and chat about life, wine, and why you should be drinking the wines from the land down under. And, there is nothing daggy about that.
