The wine experts were welcomed by Minister for Agriculture, Jaala Pulford, in Melbourne where they launched the sommeliers program which will run side-by-side the World’s 50 Best Restaurants (W50B) program.
“Having fifty of the world’s best wine experts was too good an opportunity to waste,” the Minister said.
He added, “We know Victoria makes some of the world’s best wines, and we’re making sure that those who decide what wine gets poured at restaurants around
the world know all about our labels, districts and terroirs.”
The visiting sommeliers will tour five of the state’s 21 distinct wine regions, learning about the exciting alternative varietals as well as history of traditional wines.
Sommeliers will then return to their respective countries armed with knowledge and experience to recommend Victorian wines to thousands of new customers.
