About 'meet the Experts' Tasting Sessions - Matt Skinner

This will be Matt's third year at Vinopolis after an extremely popular and engaging debut in 2007. Matt Skinner is a wine writer, consultant, and educator well-known to international audiences for his refreshing take on wine, and knack for making it simple. A strong believer that wine is for everyone, and that enjoying it is your right rather than your privilege, Matt, in recent times, has twice been short-listed for the IWSC International Communicator of the Year Award, is author of the awarded and international bestseller Thirsty Work (published in 17 countries and 10 languages) and continues to put together his annual guide, The Juice - 100 wines you should be drinking.

On 28 March 2009, Matt is hosting an exclusive wine tasting at Vinopolis where he will take you through a comprehensive wine tasting focusing on Australian wines. Australia has become the pin-up of the New World of wine, and is a country that has broken free from the traditions and rules of the Old World.  It is technologically innovative, consumer-orientated, internationally competitive, and above all, produces wonderful sun-drenched fruit-driven wines.  With over 2,000 wine producers and Australia being the fourth biggest exporter of wine, the choice can be quite overwhelming so Matt will take you through a wine tasting of five of his favourite wines from Down Under.

Matt's wine tasting will take approximately one hour, and during the VIP session guests will receive an additional 30-minute Q&A session with Matt, as well as a signed copy of his book . As part of your Matt Skinner wine tasting package, you will also receive a Grapevine self-guided wine tour ticket which can be redeemed on the day or alternatively you can visit on another day (within six months).

Tickets are priced at £59 per person and £99 per person for the VIP session.

The VIP session will take place at 12:00, and the regular sessions at 15:00.
