Calling all chardonnay lovers

Leading British wine educator and writer Jancis Robinson will headline the Langton’s Chardonnay Symposium Australia 2019 to be held at the Yarra Valley Racing Centre on October 31.

The Chardonnay Symposium is about sharing the world’s best practices in growing and making chardonnay. 

The program will feature presentations from industry leaders including Vanya Cullen, James Halliday and Michael Brajkovich.

“Australian chardonnay is at a particularly perfect stage in its evolution, emaciated, technically perfect and more elegant,” Robinson said (rather pretentiously IMHO). 

The schedule will provide insights into research and development of the variety as well as predicted future trends in growing, making and consuming chardonnay. 

Wine flights tasted on the day will include leading chardonnays from Australia, New Zealand and France.

“There is a reason why chardonnay is the most widely distributed white wine grape in the world," Robinson said. "Its appeal is universal. It is supremely versatile, making potentially excellent wines both still and sparkling,” Robinson said.

Ticket-holders will have the opportunity to hear from global leaders on best practice in the
vineyard, the winery and what’s happening in the global context of chardonnay.

The Langton’s Chardonnay Symposium Dinner will follow with a four-course menu featuring the
local produce of the Yarra Valley. 

Tickets are on sale now. Participants are welcome to purchase tickets for the Symposium + dinner $650+GST, symposium only $500+GST, or dinner only $200+GST.
