7 Jul 2018 to 8 Jul 2018
Do you enjoy wine and want to know more about where this glorious stuff comes from? On the weekend of July 7 and 8, Bendigo region wineries open their sacred barrel halls so you can taste wine straight from the barrel. Like eating cherries from the tree or bread just out of the oven, tasting wine from the barrel is tasting the magic of winemaking.
At 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm on both days, winemakers will give you a hint of the mystery and romance of winemaking from inside the barrel. Take your pick from the list of participating wineries and book your free spot. Why not make a day of it and visit more than one. Call each winery you would like to visit and book your barrel tasting. It is free to attend.
Venues include BlackJack Wines, Sutton Grange Winery (Sunday only), Killiecrankie Wines, Sandhurst Ridge Winery, Connor Park Winery and Balgownie Estate (Saturday only).
If you fall in love with a certain drop, be sure to check with the winemaker about a pre-release purchase at a special price.
