The usual tasting and chatting with the winemakers will be supplemented with chef's demontrations , wine and cheese matching seminars and a pentaque competition. What better way to spend a Spring weekend.

Some other numbers. There sixty-one wine regions in Australia, numbered by James Halliday from 1 to 56. He cleverly inserts 12a, 19a, 39a, 39b and 55a to get them all in. Vinodiversity will eventiually provide a guide to alternative varieties in all of them. The list has just started, you can watch progress at Wine regions. Better still, why not subscribe to the Vinodiversity Newsletter
Halliday lists 1865 wineries in his 2005 Wine Companion, a difficult number to pin down. But I think about 400-500 of these are making wine from alternative varieties.
