Our families have just returned home from their third trip to China together and second consecutive visit with Wine Australia.
Kicking off on May 21st we had a jam packed schedule, visiting Tianjin, Hangzhou, Kunming and Shenzhen over eight days.
Highlighting the itinerary were two masterclasses on the first and final days.
The first was a classic Shiraz Masterclass in Tianjin and we finished off the tour with a Mature Icons masterclass in Shenzhen.
McWilliam’s 6th generation winemaker and family ambassador Scott McWilliam said he was “proud” to represent AFFW, Australia and McWilliam’s Wines over in China.
“Traveling through China with my “extended family” the AFFW crew has been a blast! I love catching up and working with like minded wine industry people and family winery owners in particular,” he said.
“We’ve had the privilege of connecting with the local wine lovers in multiple markets throughout mainland China, share our wines with them and tell our amazing stories. Selling wine in China is exciting and our wines have been highly appreciated and praised, which is not surprising when so much passion and hard work goes into every single bottle of our wine.”
“The McWilliam family is certainly very proud to be a founding member of the AFFW group, flying the flag for Australian wine.”
