USA 360 will be a tasting experience focused on the premium wine offering of the United States. From the big and bold to the elegant new styles emerging from this diverse market, it will be an evening of learning more about one of Australia’s biggest export hopes and their take on wine – direct from their own vineyards.
The event will be led by a keynote speech from Senior Export Manager (The Americas) for Casella Family Brands, Matt Tallentire. At the helm of one of Australia’s biggest exports to the USA for just under half a decade, Matt has his finger solidly on the pulse of what makes and breaks in the US and will share his insights on the market, its current performance, and his thoughts about the opportunity for Australian wine in the US.
A local wine expert will introduce the audience to key US wine regions and popular styles, ahead of inviting the audience to taste a range of premium US wines. The wines have been selected to showcase the most popular categories – including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The USA 360 event is a continuation of the popular “360” event series that the WCA NSW Chapter has instigated in an effort to give those who work in wine a look further afield than our domestic playing field, and learn more about how to be competitive in international markets.
This is a must for anyone looking to expand their own global wine repertoire or learn what the wine drinker is looking for and enjoying in the rich tapestry that is the US market.
