Discover Wines From Australia (SOUTHAMPTON)
Welcome to the New World of Wine tasting on Australia. Enjoy a selection of intense, complex and powerful wines from down under!
Ample sunshine and favoured climatic conditions mean Australia can often produce quality on a regular basis. This consistency guarantee delivers assurance to many wine drinkers across the world and has been pivotal in Australia’s rise to international stardom. From the big, spicy and powerful Shiraz to the full and ripe Cabernet Sauvignon to the more mellow and aromatic Grenache, their reds offer great value for money whilst their whites, such as Chardonnay, are rich, ripe and rounded and Viognier is perfumed and aromatic.
But are these wines too hot to handle? Too intense and alcoholic or well-balanced? It’s time to investigate!
Australia is home to an amazing array of diverse climates and these are reflected in its many unique and regionally distinct wine regions, from cooler wine regions such as Adelaide Hills and Margaret River, to super hot ones, such as Barossa Valley. Let's dicover each regions and what they are now famous for, in terms of wine styles, grape varieties and award-winning producers.
All tastings include: minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet, and use of professional ISO tastings glasses.

Therefore, we will be running at reduced capacity. Only 12 people will ever be allowed to join me at a tasting at St James' Tavern in Winchester, whereas our function room at the Mercure Dolphin Hotel in Southampton is significantly bigger and can accommodate 20 people whilst still enforcing social distancing restrictions.
The situation is fluid still and we are hoping to gradually build back up towards normal proceedings and we are appreciative of your continued patience and support.
