In this tasting we’ll be staying off the beaten track of the large, big production wineries and concentrating instead on some special smaller, family owned wineries. Boutique producers are interested in a hands-on approach to winemaking which their smaller productions allow. Quality is the watchword here with dedicated winemakers producing superb quality premium wines from carefully tended vines. In this unusual tasting we’ll taste wines from wineries such as The Gun Dog Estate, which was established in 2006 when the Burton family acquired a small ten year old vineyard in the Canberra region. Their passion for high quality, regionally distinct wine has inspired them to pursue two of Australia’s most unique and highly acclaimed wine styles; Hunter Valley Semillon, and Canberra Shiraz. Then there’s Payten and Jones – and you couldn’t get more boutique than them! Behn Payten’s day job is cider maker and brewer at Napoleone Brewery and Ciderhouse. Troy Jones also makes cider and somehow, in the scraps of free time they have left from their respective jobs, the two of them also manage to collaborate on their own wine label Payten & Jones, producing a range of wines that is well worth seeking out. And that’s just two of the unusual producers we’ll be looking at in this amazing tasting!
Presenter Elliot Awin of ABS Wine Agencies has very carefully put together an amazing range of six premium wines that we guarantee you haven’t tried before. This will be a very special tasting!
