3.5 hours of wine tasting, numerous varieties of Italian wine grown right here in Australia, and a take home Riedel glass, all for $30. Sold? That's what wine lovers and learners are in for when they hit up the late afternoon session at 21st Century Vino happening at Fed Square venue, Zinc, on May 17.
Learn how just one teeny little cutting brought to Australia from Italy in 2001 became thousands of bottles of wine at this session from 5pm to 8.30pm.
Alternatively, you might want join the day time sessions including Terra Australis (pondering what is australian wine?), From One Vine to One Nation (vine propagation), and 21st Century Vino (the future of Australian wine). Each day time session is $60 or $150 for the full day (including the night time Exploration session).
Brought to us by Chalmers, and event managed by Bottleshop Concepts, 21st Century Vino is a celebration of wine through understanding and appreciation. You don't need to be a wine wanker for this event; come along, learn a little, sip a bit, enjoy a lot. I personally will be keeping an eye out for this skallywag.
