    Wine Australia will be launching Australian Wine Discovered, a great new resource for wine educators, in January. “Available free to teach all levels from beginner to advanced, the programme is packed with information, resources and tools to discover and share Australian wine. There will be 20+ education guides spanning key regions, varieties and topical themes plus editable presentations, handouts, videos, maps and tasting mats. It’s a phenomenal resource for wine educators, importers, distributors, retailers and others. More information about the programme and to access the materials: https://www.wineaustralia.com/education We’re inviting you and your members to explore the programme at the global launch at the Australia Trade Tasting on 22 January. Wine Australia’s CEO Andreas Clark and our education team will be on hand to introduce the programme, talk to guests and set up demos to test it out. We’d like to encourage educators to come along to the launch (and the tasting) and explore it for yourselves.”
