Calabria Family Wines

PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE USE | November 2019

RIVERINA DURIF FLYS HIGH WITH INTERNATIONAL TROPHY WIN!

It's considered the most exclusive wine school in the world and in 2019, Calabria's Chief Winemaker, Emma Norbiato, gained a place into the 'Len Evens Tutorial'.
"An inspiring wine week, to learn about the best wines in the world from some of Australia's greatest... a once in a lifetime experience." Emma Norbiato. Over a five-day period, starting in the morning and continuing through the course of dinner at night, the 12 selected scholars for the Tutorial are exposed to the great wines of the world, young, old and extremely rare. There are blind tastings each morning of 30 varietal wines (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet/Cabernet blends) from up to five countries and spanning up to 30 years. The wines are judged as if they were in an Australian wine show, and every scholar sequentially calls his or her points for each wine, and has to justify those points where they differ from the tutors’ points. 2019 Tutors included, James Halliday, Ian McKenzie and Iain Riggs. Every scholar takes away from the week imbued with the vision of Len Evan, which was to further train the 12 gifted palates as phenomenal wine show judges and most importantly, they have passed on to their peers their knowledge (and desire to continue learning) about the great wines of the world, and Australia’s position in that world. It is the absolute determination of the Trustees of the Tutorial, and of the tutors, to continue, and, as Len would insist, to make each Tutorial better than the one which preceded it.
