Riesling lovers set for a week of wine excellence

Riesling lovers will be descending on Melbourne and Sydney in February, 2018, for the second Riesling Downunder festival. 

Established in 2001 as the biennial 'Frankland Estate International Riesling Tasting' – Riesling Downunder maintains an international focus and celebratory spirit.  

The event is the most comprehensive international Riesling experience staged in the Southern Hemisphere - consisting of tasting events and master classes for wine drinkers, industry and trade.

Riesling Downunder 2018, co-hosted by Frankland Estate, Jim Barry Wines and Pikes, brings together a group of passionate drinkers and winemakers who are committed to this noble grape and will run from February 2-7. 

Riesling Downunder will feature the largest and most diverse collection of rieslings to be seen in Australia under one roof," said Hunter Smith of Frankland Estate. "They will include some of the world’s most highly acclaimed rieslings. 

Key events will include a pop-up riesling bar on the banks of the Yarra River from Feb 2-6 along with more intimate tastings from over 70 producers. 

Sydney Town Hall will host a major tasting, under the rather silly name of Riesling Riot, on Feb 7.
