JACOB’S CREEK IS THE FIRST-EVER OFFICIAL WINE OF MASTERCHEF AUSTRALIA

JACOB’S CREEK™, today announced details of its partnership with Network Ten’s MasterChef Australia as the exclusive wine partner for 2018, a first for the TV show in its 10-year history.

To amplify the partnership, a new TVC produced by Sydney agency Rockatansky will go live on 7 May, 2018, and be played throughout the season.
