With the conference behind us (but inspiration still blazing!), the OWNZ marketing team have turned their attention to Organic Wine Week.
Last year's inaugural Organic Wine Week exceeded our expectations with every OWNZ collaborated event selling out! Social media was also abuzz with restaurants, retailers and consumers alike all joining the celebration.
Lets make it an annual institution!
17 to 23 September is Organic Wine Week. There will be something for everyone with events ranging from free tastings at delicious Black Estate Wine through to many courses at innovative '1 Hat' restaurant Shepherd. But the themes will be consistent - social, engaging & delicious.
As details are finalised, events will be listed on our Facebook page with links to purchase your ticket. Some events have limited availability, so be sure to check in regularly so you don't miss out!
