The Next Generation of Australia’s First Families of Wine

The next generation of AFFW are the future of these families. Passionate about wine, they have grown up with their family's stories, history and heritage.

The ongoing success of AFFW relies on this generation coming together to build their own relationships, to understand each other's wines and wine business and to creating an open forum for sharing and communication.

They are the future of these families.

What Our Members Think...

"The most valuable part is getting to know the other "kids" in the next generation. It's always refreshing to meet people who have very similar upbringings and subsequent passions for our outstanding industry. We have all become great mates as a result of our fun time together. Going forward I look forward to working very closely with them to help drive the AFFW collaboration well into the future."


"It is great to meet the members of the AFFW Next Gen and to share experiences and discuss the opportunities and challenges we all face as family members in an incredibly challenging industry. We have big shoes to fill and it's good to bond with other like-minded people and it's comforting to know that we can all work together to ensure the success and longevity of our family wineries."


"It's great to know there are so many like-minded people evolving in the Australian wine industry who have the passion and drive for Australian wine.

I think it's extremely exciting knowing how much support and passion that is driving the Australian wine industry moving forward within this group of young next genners."
