Last chance to register for tasting of Australia’s lesser known Italian whites

Australian wineries have until the end of tomorrow (Thursday) to register their interest in the Wine & Viticulture Journal’s forthcoming tasting of lesser-known Italian whites, including Garganega, Greco, Verduzzo, Malvasia, Bianco d’Alessano and Grillo.

In the last six years, the Journal has held tastings of Australian-made Arneis, Vermentino, Fiano and Pinot Grigio and today each of these Italian whites are being produced by at least 50 local wineries. We’re now throwing our spotlight on some of these varieties’ lesser-known Italian cousins. On their own these whites aren’t yet produced in sufficient number in Australia to warrant stand-alone tastings, so we’re going to bringing them together to see what they have to offer in one super-sized tasting of Italian alternative whites.

Wines already registered for the tasting include Bianco d’Alessano, Pinot Bianco, Malvasia, Verdicchio, Picolit, Greco and Friulano.

Producers interested in submitting wines to the tasting have until close of business (Australian Central Daylight Time) tomorrow to email editor Sonya Logan () and register their interest.

Wines will need to be received by no later than Wednesday 15 April with the results of the tasting will be published in the May/June issue of the Journal.
