About Meet the Winemaker

Information for Victorian Wine Industry

Meet the Winemaker is a Victorian Government initiative in association with Wine Victoria and Victoria's Regional Wine Associations aimed at increasing exports of Victorian wine.

The event, which is a targeted industry program, will be held from 25-28 May 2015 for wine producing companies which are headquartered or based in Victoria and whose wines are produced from Victorian grapes.

Up to 100 buyers from across the globe will be invited to attend Meet the Winemaker, a program for inward buyers, sommeliers, journalists and trade.  The program will consist of two parts:

  • visits to a selected number of wine regions to enable trade to have a good understanding of what makes Victoria unique
  • a wine showcase, which will provide the trade to taste some of Victoria's best wines.

In December 2014, each of Victoria’s Regional Wine Associations were given the opportunity to participate in the program. At this stage, the buyers will visit the regions of King Valley, Mornington Peninsula, Bendigo, Heathcote, Yarra Valley and Rutherglen.

The wine showcase will provide an opportunity for 100 wineries to present their wines in a trade-style environment.  This event will be held in Melbourne on Monday 25th May.
