Tempranillo is now considered to be one of the rising stars on the Australian wine scene.
Its various interpretations from diverse Australian regions have created a stir quite out of proportion to the modest area currently under vine. It has demonstrated its potential to yield unique and distinctive wines that give clear voice to their place of origin.
With this in mind, the TempraNeo 2011 workshop series has been designed to deliver a broader and deeper understanding of the panorama that is Australian Tempranillo. It will bring together eighteen of the finest Tempranillo wines from across the country to help build a comprehensive picture of the many faces of the variety from this wide and contrasting landscape.
