Australia's NYC Tasting Event Dazzles
[On Location] A diverse and exceptional food & wine experience awaits groups

Seppeltsfield

A

ustralia recently held an experiential
wine and food pairing event in New
York City that offered a taste of the
country's magnificent wines, and a glimpse
of the vineyards, culinary experiences and
meetings facilities that await groups. The
Honorable Steven Ciobo, Australia's minister
for trade, tourism and investment, and officials
from Tourism Australia hosted the soiree,
and member wineries of the Ultimate Winery
Experiences Australia joined in with wine
from Western Australia, South Australia,
Victoria and Tasmania.
Ciobo explained to the group that
tourism is a major driver of Australia's
national economy; local governments,
therefore, are eager to make business and
leisure groups happy by providing them with
unique experiences. "We also offer high
quality and a premium aviation product from
North America to Australia," Ciobo said, "and
once groups arrive they can have a safe and
secure environment with immersive, diverse
and authentic experiences."
Wine tourism continues to grow
year-over-year in Australia, explained Sally
Cope, executive officer at Ultimate Winery
Experiences, whose 22 winery members

guarantee groups diverse and top-notch
food and wine experiences across the
Australian continent. "This is an immensely
exciting time for Australian wine tourism.
All of our winery members recognize
the appetite for 'beyond the cellar door'
experiences that go further than wine
tastings and bottles of wine to purchase.
Most are offering a complete tourism
experience with great restaurants, fabulous
venue spaces, tours and some really exciting
behind-the-scenes winery experiences. We
anticipate strong growth from the business
events sector as awareness grows of our
specialist offerings and experiences."

The Ultimate Food
& Wine Adventure
Just an hour or two south of Melbourne
(depending on which route you choose)
on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria,
Montalto Vineyard & Olive Grove offers
pinot noir, chardonnay and cuvee wines,
which we experienced during the cocktail
hour portion of our evening. The location
of Montalto is such that groups can stay in
Melbourne and experience the winery with its
award-winning restaurant serving seasonal

local produce cooked on wood fire grills.
Same goes for the Jackalope Boutique Hotel
at Willow Creek Vineyard, also on the
Picture
peninsula and a recent winner
of caption
a Gourmet
Traveller magazine award.
In Western Australia, just three hours
south of Perth in Margaret River, the
elegant Leeuwin Estate served us riesling,
sauvignon blanc semillon and a chardonnay
during our first course of chilled Australian
oyster and heirloom tomato tartare. And
just outside Adelaide in South Australia is
Penfolds Magill Estate Cellar Door with
its Estate Restaurant. Here, groups can
experience South Australian produce and
educational wine tastings. Penfolds served
our group a wonderful shiraz with a 28-day
dry aged Australian rib eye for our
second course.
In the Barossa Valley, also just outside
of Adelaide, is Seppeltsfield winery, which
poured us a 100-year-old vintage tawny
port to complement mandarin and holy
basil truffles. Groups visiting this winery will
have the unique experience of a history tour
that pairs tawny ports from the winery's
Centennial Collection to major world events
such as the 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic
or 1969 moon landing.
Yet another wine region of Australia
that planners should consider is Moorilla
Estate, north of the city centre in Hobart,
Tasmania. They served our group a
traditional brut and a rose brut with a trio
of desserts, including a dark chocolate
terrarium sphere and a salted caramel
floating torte. Groups can have a wine, food
and art experiences at MONA (Museum
of Old and New Art), part of the estate
and housing Australia's largest private art
collection, a dining option and luxe boutique
accommodations.
Yes, when it comes to food and wine,
planners have plenty to choose from across
