Wine Focus Australia is inviting representatives of the liquor industry to attend an informative tasting in Sydney from tomorrow (Aug 27).

The event, now in its third year at the Museum of Contemporary Art, will feature wines from over 15 different regions and encourage interaction between winemakers and the trade.

Wines on offer will range from established players like McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant, Farr, Yering Station and Taylor’s, to intriguing newcomers like Bird in Hand, Farago Hill, and Tscharke.

A range of ‘master classes’ across several varietals and terroirs will also be offered.

Most of Australia’s producers of ‘Savagnin’, or what was thought to be Albarino, will be showcasing their wines.

There will be a $35 admission cost for Wine Focus Australia, which runs over August 27 and 28. Trade tastings are offered from 2 to 5pm and general admission is from 5 to 9pm.
