Explore Australia & New Zealand

More than anywhere else, New Zealand and Australia are the flagbearers for the “Brave New World” of wine.

If you’ve only ever drunk mass-produced supermarket wines you’re in for a treat, with six great wines that are uniquely from “Down Under”.

Join us  at the Lion and Pheasant Hotel for a great night of wine tasting as we head Down Under. Plentiful sunshine and a comparative lack of winemaking red tape have allowed the Australians to lead the field in the development of mainstream, competitively priced wines with a crowd-pleasing formula of fruit and oak. However, Australia today is home of the boutique winery, where a focus upon quality and restraint are changing the face of Australian wine.

For a tiny nation, New Zealand wine punches way beyond its weight. You can’t have missed the UK Sauvignon revolution spearheaded by New Zealand’s Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc; we take some time to understand the subtleties of this vibrant, vivacious wine style and then look beyond Sauvignon at what New Zealand has to offer.
