Meet Australia’s First Families of Wine, Guardians of the Soil with over 1,200 years of family winemaking.

Recently we had the first-ever opportunity to meet the premium producers behind Australia’s First Families of Wine (AFFW) as they showcased more than 1,200 years of collective winemaking at an exclusive media and trade tasting. AFFW’s “Guardians of the Soil”. The event showcased more than 60 iconic wines and rare back-vintages that demonstrate the unique characteristics of cherished vineyard sites from a collective of multi-generational family winemakers who are “guardians of the soil” for 16 Australian regions across four states.

It was a really unique experience whereby like speed dating, we moved from table to table with our group of wine media, sommeliers and VIP trade with an opportunity to speak and taste with the principles of these iconic producers. Check out our interviews with Peter Barry of Jim Barry Wines: and Alister Purbick of Tahbilk Winery and Vineyard: from two of these distinguished producers.

Look for these wine labels by these amazing producers at the LCBO and Vintages from Brown Brothers, Campbell’s ,d’Arenberg, De Bortoli, Henschke, Howard Park, Jim Barry Wines, McWilliam’s, Tahbilk,Tyrrell’s, Wakefield, Yalumba
