La Cantina Italian Wine Masterclass
11.30am – 12.30pm
Home to some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world, Italy’s wines are loved both at home and abroad. No other country can boast as many varieties, ranging through almost every possible colour, flavour, and wine style. Approximately one-fifth of the world’s wine comes directly from Italy’s vineyards and Italy, closely followed by Spain and France, is the world’s largest wine producer by volume. In this masterclass you will be taken on a viticultural tour through Italy, tasting Italian wines specific to these regions.
Plantagenet & Plumm Masterclass
Hosted by Luke Eckersley Chief Wine Maker, Plantagenet Wines
11.30am – 12.30pm

As a pioneer of the Great Southern region, Plantagenet’s reputation is celebrated for its rich heritage, its expressive wines and family owned sensibility, making it one of the most trusted wine brands in the country. Using the right wine glass can mean the difference between a good glass of wine and a great one. Born and bred in Melbourne, Plumm is the first Australian glassware brand designed for specific wine styles.
World of Pinot Noir Masterclass
Presented by the Casama Group
2.30pm – 3.30pm
The Pinot grape is one of the world’s favourite grapes, producing wines with an intensity that oozes summer flavours of ripe cherries, wild strawberries and crushed berries. Add to that a velvety smoothness and an underlying complexity and you have a silky wine that’s hard to beat. Its heartland may be in Burgundy but superb examples can also be found from around the world.
In this masterclass, Sally McGill, Director of Sales and Marketing – International at the Casama Group, will lead you through a tasting of both domestic and international Pinot Noir wines.
Mollydooker Wines Shiraz Masterclass
Hosted by Matt Wilmer
2.30pm – 3.30pm
Mollydooker is an exciting, out of left field winery in the heart of McLaren Vale, South Australia. Although the winery makes a wide variety of wine styles, they have a soft spot for Shiraz. In this tasting you will be guided through a selection of their Shiraz or Shiraz blends and given an insight into some of their unique wine making practices. You will learn about the Mollydooker Shake, which is the unique process that the winemakers use to prepare their wines for drinking; Mollydooker Fruit Weight, which is how they measure quality in their wines; and finally, the Mollydooker Flavour Curve, which is how they achieve the amazing depth of colour and flavour in their wines.
