Margaret River & Great Southern Wine Masterclass

Royal Scots Club, Edinburgh



Thursday 8 September 2022

7.30pm - 9.30pm

The Royal Scots Club, Abercromby Place, Edinburgh


Join this fun tasting highlighting the two main wine growing areas of Western Australia: Margaret River and Great Southern.

The terroir and wine culture is so unique in this beautiful remote corner of Australia.

Margaret River is perhaps the best known - with its mediterranean climate, strong maritime influence & gravelly soils it has become Australia's heartland for Bordeaux varietals.  Iconic reds made from Cabernet Sauvigon & Merlot and thrilling refreshing dry whites from Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon have become the signature of Margaret River - but they also make superb Chardonnay and Shiraz.

Frankland River Western Australia

Great Southern is a large cool region in the deep south west of Australia with a vast remote landscape.  At this tasting we will discover its five subregions (including Frankland and Mount Barker) - and taste a diverse range of wines from fine cool climate dry Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz.

The tasting of 13 wines will be hosted by Rose Murray Brown MW.

No prior knowledge required - just a love of Australia wine.

Gift vouchers available on request - this would make a great gift for a New World wine lover.
