Press Release Australian wine tasting 

Warsaw, 28 February 2018

#AussieWineInPoland - everything you always wanted to know about Australian wines but were afraid to ask, 15 March in Warsaw.

The Australian Embassy is hosting a Trade Tasting in Warsaw featuring 16 wineries on 15 March. The tasting will be held in the “Piękno” conference space located in the heart of Warsaw, in a beautiful tenement at Szpitalna 8A.

Guests will be able to taste more than 100 wines from various regions of Australia. While some of the wines are already present and appreciated in the Polish market, there will also be seven (7) wineries that are looking for importers in Poland.

#AussieWineInPoland tasting provides an opportunity to discover the depth and variety of Australia. Wine makers and importers will present their wines, talk about the latest trends in Antipodes' wine making and introduce the multigenerational history of Australian viticulture. They will also provide guests with answers to everything you always wanted to know about Aussie wines but were afraid to ask.

According to Australian Ambassador Paul Wojciechowski “#AussieWineInPoland will be a relaxed, informal and fun event; a celebration of Australian wine and a real eye-opener for many”. 

Thanks to our friends from Qatar Airways - guests will also have the chance to win a return trip for two to Australia. Qatar recently launched a new daily service to Canberra, its fifth destination in Australia. Qatar Airways now operates to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra. The national carrier of the State of Qatar is one of the fastest-growing airlines operating one of the youngest aircraft in the world, with a modern fleet of more than 200 aircraft flying to business and leisure destinations across six continents.

The program for Aussie Wine in Poland comprises:

  • "Shirazathon" Masterclass from 11am-1pm – showing a variety of Shiraz from different regions of Australia
  • Tasting for trade, media, sommeliers and bloggers from 2-5pm
  • Consumer tasting from 5-7pm.

Australia is one of the New World leaders of the wine industry. Its offer is extremely diverse and very modern, although winemakers from Antipodes do not shy away from their roots. The entire wine world is also benefiting from the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI). Australia sets new standards not only in wine production but also in its communication and marketing.

We encourage you to take patronage over the event.
