Victoria Welcomes USA Buyers!

Last week Wine Victoria hosted a group of US buyers across an epic Victorian itinerary through the support of our partnership with Global Victoria. Across seven regions, the group tasted wines from over 50 producers spanning 15 regions.

The trip kicked off with a Victorian Wine Immersion Masterclass hosted by Max Allen, against the scenic backdrop of St Kilda’s Stokehouse. This was followed by a journey across Victoria, with experiences including; varietal flights in the Yarra Valley, meet the makers in Geelong, a mountaintop tasting overlooking the Grampians and Pyrenees, an underground cellar lunch, the best of Heathcote Reds tasting, Macedon Ranges pinots paired with local duck, capped off with an afternoon at Melbourne’s Grand Prix.

"This has been the trip of a lifetime.” – Tamika White Harris, HEB/Central Market

"We just didn’t know about all these amazing wines across Victoria and now we do.” – Mark Harmann, Independent Distributor Network

A big thank you to our hosts, Max Allen and Angus Hughson, and to all the producers and regions who took part in the trip!
