Matthew Jukes: The 100 Best Australian Wine Festival Newcastle @ Wylam, Brewery, Sunday 19th May.

We are beyond excited that Matthew Jukes has invited us to host the final leg of the landmark event ‘100 Best Australian Wine Festival 2024’. This will be an epic celebration of the best wines Australia has to offer and it is  the twentieth year of Matthew compiling his annual report on Australian wines, considered the bible for Australian wine lovers. He has chosen only 4 locations across the UK to show a selection of the wines….and we are one of them.

So a Newcastle first! The event will be held at Wylam Brewery, the man himself is there to talk you through his choices. Matthew is considered to be the UK authority on Australian wine and a terrific wine writer and raconteur to boot, so expect a fantastic experience. Doors open at 2pm and you can spend two and a half hours tasting 54 of the top wines, chatting about the wines with Matthew and with the team of people who will be supporting him and generally enjoying the finest to come out of Australia and some of the best company in the City.

This is probably the most important wine event in the North East calendar this year, so don’t miss out.
