Exceptional Tasting Series: AUSTRALIA, Wines from the Fine Wine Agency

Exceptional Tasting Series

AUSTRALIA


Recalling our initiative of last fall, 67 Wine is thrilled to present another series of tastings focusing on the wines of Australia. This time, we are partnering with three dynamic importers - all Aussie born and bred - to highlight the breadth and quality of wines made on the continent. Gordon Little, Anthony Allport and Aaron Ridgway have all devoted themselves to bringing the best of Australia's wines to New York's crowded and perpetually trend-driven wine scene. Each of the next three Tuesdays will see Gordon, Aaron and Anthony - in that order - come to 67 Wine to pour some outstanding wines from their respective portfolios.

This year, however, the Aussie series will culminate in an exclusive dinner on Thursday, November 14 at Burke & Willis restaurant, where our three importers will come together to guide us through a stellar lineup of wine and food pairings. The event will be offered only to customers of 67 Wine, and spots will be limited. A number of wines due to be on the bill will be brand new to 67 Wine, and this will be a unique opportunity to taste them before they become available for sale.

More than a playful agglomeration of the three import companies' names, "Fine Little Negociants" quite well represents Aaron, Gordon and Anthony's message, as well as that of the present series: that Australia puts out a great many Fine wines of all styles; the country is packed full of Little producers, whose wines have the potential to captivate and delight wine lovers; and, as implied by the name "Negociants", Australia's wine culture is deeply rooted in, and inextricably linked to, that of Europe. The best producers, in making wines that are distinctly Aussie in their approach and ethos, are invariably looking toward the classic regions of Europe for inspiration.

We are proud to host this exciting series, and hope you can join us to experience these special wines.
