New Zealand fine wine drops into Perth and Adelaide

Wine lovers in Perth and Adelaide are invited to savour the rare opportunity to taste 150 fine wines from up to 32 different wineries across New Zealand.

The huge, one-day-only wine tasting event — NZ in a Glass, is coordinated by New Zealand Winegrowers, the representative body of the New Zealand wine industry.

It is the biggest New Zealand wine tasting held in Perth and Adelaide and is designed to offer a snapshot of the New Zealand wine industry as a whole. It will also give the wineries a unique opportunity to connect directly with local businesses and consumers.

Both events will take place between 12.00pm to 5.00pm. Those interested in attending can register at www.nzwineevents.com.au.

Marketing Projects Manager of New Zealand Winegrowers, Monty James will be attending and is encouraging of South and West Australians to discover the fine wines of New Zealand:

“We’re very aware that we are entering two of Australia’s most prominent wine states. Both states have access to an abundance of quality wine from their backyard, however the demand for NZ Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in particular continues to grow strongly in Australia and NZ in a Glass will be the perfect opportunity to see what all the fuss is about,” he said.

A consumer tasting session will take place between 6.00pm and 9.00pm. Please note there will be no door sales, all tickets are sold via www.nzwineevents.com.au or through Ticketmaster outlets.
