ProWein is the world’s leading trade fair for wine and spirits and the largest meeting for industry specialists from viticulture, production, trade and gastronomy. It takes place annually in Germany at Dusseldorf. A handful of Riverland wineries will be participating in two Masterclass events at this year’s event from March 19 -21.
Phil Reedman will once again be presenting the Gems of the Riverland as he did several weeks ago at the Adelaide Cellar Door Festival. See last week’s round-up for details. Wines from Mallee Estates, 919 Wines, Bassham’s, Whistling Kite, Byrne Vineyards and Kingston Estates will be presented to a sell-out audience of discerning wine buyers from around the planet.
The Riverland’s growing conditions make the region ideal for producing Mediterranean varieties. In a second presentation, Phil will present three examples of the little known, Riverland grown, Mediterranean variety, Petit Manseng to a Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) Masterclass. The Trust, or WSET as it is known, provides globally recognised education and qualifications in wines, spirits and sake, for professionals and enthusiasts alike. At this WSET master class, the audience of young industry professionals will sample Petit Manseng from three pioneers of alternative varieties from the Riverland using three different production techniques.
To have these two opportunities to showcase Riverland wines at this world event is a real privilege and RW acknowledges our colleagues at Wine Australia for encouraging our smaller producers to ‘step up to the plate’ and demonstrate to the world, that the Riverland produces outstanding wines of great diversity and style as well as supplying the country’s leading wine producers with consistent, reliable wines that meet the majority of international consumers’ preferences and pockets.
