The latest in our series of wine tastings and suppers.
The New Australia with Tim Hart and guest speaker Amelia Jukes in Hart’s Upstairs
£60 per person

7pm on Thursday 25th September 2014

We have been aware for some time of exciting developments in Australia but lacking the knowledge to host such an event single handed have waited until now to share our finds with friends and clients at a  Harts Upstairs tasting event.

Amelia Jukes (Co-host of this event) established Hallowed Ground in 2010 to showcase the new wave of fine wines emerging from Australia. Amelia previously worked on her family’s vineyard in the south of Portugal (where she ‘imported’ Australian winemakers to help at vintage) while writing a weekly wine column for Country Life and also as the wine writer for Waitrose she decided to switch to distribution having travelled extensively across the great wine regions of Australia with her husband, Matthew Jukes (Daily Mail wine writer) and realised that many of the great Australian wines were not available in the UK. Amelia and her business partner, Elodie Cameron strive to bring the new generation of Australian Fine Wine to the UK.

“Hallowed Ground” represents eight highly-regarded, Australian boutique wine estates. The estates are all family-owned and production is small. The wines each have a sense of provenance and regionality expressing the very best vineyards across Australia and first class winemaking from some of the most inspirational winemakers in the world.
