Wines of Australia

It's back! This year marks the third annual Philly Young Alumni Wine Tasting. Join us to explore the Wines of Australia with the Wine School of Philadelphia.

Are all wine gurus obnoxious snobs? Is it too much to ask for a wine speaker to be smart, funny, and dynamic? The answer is no. Keith Wallace and his staff at The Wine School of Philadelphia run fun and informative wine tastings that crack open the mystery of wine. Their wine events are in the truest sense a study in pleasure. The event will begin with a pithy introduction to the art of tasting wine, followed by a tasting of eight of the top wine picks from Australia.
