Australia’s First Families of Wine – Unlocking their cellars and heading to Brisbane



Australia’s First Families of Wine –

Unlocking their cellars and heading to Brisbane


Riding high on the success of 2012 Unlocked masterclasses in Sydney, Australia’s First Families of Wine (AFFW) is back on the road, bringing the wine event of the year to Brisbane.

On Monday June 3, the stage will be set as the Hilton Brisbane Ballroom is transformed into a masterclass like no other.

Each of the twelve families who make up AFFW will be represented at the event , giving guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the most famous names in Australian wine, whilst hearing the stories behind the wines that have been hand selected from each family’s private cellars.

The first masterclass will see the head of each family sharing one carefully selected museum wine. Hear Ross Brown, Colin Campbell, d’Arry Osborn, Darren DeBortoli, Stephen Henschke, Jeff Burch, Peter Barry, Doug McWilliam, Alister Purbrick, Mitchell Taylor, Bruce Tyrrell and Robert Hill Smith share their stories, present their special wine and give guests a snapshot of their family history as part of the iconic Australian wine landscape.

The Next Generation of the twelve families will then take to the stage to showcase their most exciting new direction wines, explain the ethos behind each bottle and the future for their businesses as they see it .

Positioned as one of the country’s most exciting, exclusive and complete wine tasting experiences, this is an event that has something for every wine lover.  We invite Brisbane’s wine lovers to be part of it!
