The Wines of Greece Roadshow is bringing sunshine in a bottle for the Australian winter

And there’s even tutorials.

It will be like sunshine in a bottle.

That’s the promise from the organisers of The Wines of Greece Roadshow, which is heading back to Australia.

Events will be taking place across the country from June 14 to 25, with all of them giving Australians the chance to taste some of the country’s mostcelebrated wines and vintages.

It’s the forth time the Roadshow has ventured Down Under, and this year promises to be its biggest and best yet, with more than 30 wineries and over 100 different types of wine from all across the country.

And the taste differences between each region is vast, thanks to Greece’s diverse landscape and its a range of soil types, from limestone in Nemea and Cephalonia, schist in Naoussa and Rapsani, to granite and volcanic soils in the Aegean islands.

To mark the fourth roadshow in Australia, Greek Master of Wine, Yiannis Karakasis MW, will debut the Hellenic’s first masterclass in Brisbane, together with returning visits to Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.

This year’s line-up of trade and consumer events will explore these topics: Greece’s most exciting terroirs, indigenous varieties, the Greek rosé revolution and natural wines of Greece.

Wine lovers will get the chance to taste and meet the people behind the wines at four events: the Greek wine extravaganza, Oinofilia, at Sydney’s Commune on Saturday, 23 June and Melbourne’s Collingwood Town Hall on Sunday, June 24 (held by the team behind Pinot Palooza and Game of Rhones), as well as at Georges on Waymouth in Adelaide on Tuesday, June 19 and Wednesday, June 20.

Trade will be invited to sample the selection from visiting winemakers at Oinofilia during an exclusive preview (spaces limited).
