Australian First Families of Wine tasting - The wines

Members from the 12 Australian First Families of Wine were on hand during the recent London International Wine and Spirits Trade Fair to showcase the best of their regions. As the name suggests, the group is formed by family-owned wineries which have been part of Australia's long winemaking history, keen to demonstrate through their iconic wines the unique characters the country's diverse terroirs have to offer.
