The International Shiraz Alliance
What makes Shiraz the leading grape variety in the world at the moment? Why have consumers from New York to Newcastle, California to China, Oxford to Ottawa embraced the rich flavours of this historic grape? Where do the best Shiraz wines come from and what makes them special?
These will be some of the questions answered by hundreds of the world's leading Shiraz lovers at The First International Shiraz Alliance, a celebration of the variety to be held in the Barossa, Australia from July 30 to August 2.
The program for the four day event has just been released on the website http://shirazalliance.com/index.asp. The 12 page colour registration brochure is worth checking out.
