Matching wine with...shoes?

Experience a new 'platform' for wine pairing during Aussie Wine Month

An exciting new event that brings together Australia’s top female wine industry talent and matches their wines with the latest footwear and fashion trends is set to revolutionise wine pairing in an Australian first.

Women, Wine & Shoes!, presented by The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society, is being held at The Prince Deck in Melbourne on Thursday 18th April and at Rydges Southbank Brisbane on Tuesday 23rd April as part of Wine Australia’s Aussie Wine Month celebrations. Tickets are $65.00 and available from www.FabulousLadiesWineSociety.com .

Attendees will have the chance to savour wine from ten Australian wine brands whose success is in no small part due to the talents of a key woman (or several!) being involved, meet these amazing women of wine, feast on sumptuous canapés, and discover a whole new way of enjoying Australian wine as wine matching is taken to a brand new level – with shoes! 

The centrepiece of the evening is a wine and shoe matching fashion parade, where wines from the participating wineries will be matched with the latest shoes from iconic home-grown brands Bared, Nat-Sui, and Rosie Roo. The parade will also be showcasing the latest Autumn/Winter 2013 collection from Australian fashion label SpencerLacy.

Pop-up stores from SpencerLacy, Bared (in Melbourne) and Nat-Sui (in Brisbane) will be on-site to enable attendees to purchase the latest looks straight from the runway. Wines can be ordered directly from the wineries exhibiting.

Founder of The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society, Jane Thomson, says that these events have been designed to showcase Australian wine in a brand new way that is fun, feminine and accessible.

“Bringing fashion and wine together is something that happens naturally anyway – every time girls get together for a drink! Here we’ve brought our passions together under the one roof in a bold new way, creating the ultimate wine experience. It also gives us an opportunity to showcase some of the amazing women in the wine industry, who are working in what is still a very male dominated profession.”

Participating wineries include: Brown Brothers, Oliver's Taranga, Spring Seed Wine Company, ArtWine, Fowles Wine, Monument Vineyard, Anderson Winery, Summit Estate, Holm Oak Vineyards, Quealy Wines, Barristers Block

Fashion & Shoes from: SpencerLacy, Nat-Sui, Bared, Rosie Roo
