100 Best Australian Wines UK Roadshow 2018/19 – The Wines, The Dates & The Contact Details

100 Best Australian Wines UK Roadshow 2018/19 – The Wines, The Dates & The Contact Details

I am thrilled to announce that the 100 Best Australian Wines Roadshow 2018/19 is about to kick off and here are the dates for my tour!  You will see that there are some familiar names and some brand new host merchants involved, too.  It is without a doubt the most ambitious and far-reaching Roadshow since I started the 100 Best initiative fifteen years ago.  I am very grateful to the host merchants and galleries for agreeing to show my selected wines to their friends and customers as all of these wines are either brand new to the UK or brand new vintages.  It is the largest list of wines I have ever toured with and it is also the highest quality of wines I have ever poured, too.

These dates are set in stone and I will add links for you to buy tickets when they are posted on the various merchants’ websites.  I will update this article every time I am given new information, so keep a close eye on this page.  There is a further date in 2019, in Chichester with Hennings Wine, which will be announced soon.

I hope to see you on the Roadshow – the wines, listed below, and the hosts are all absolutely phenomenal!
