An abandoned warehouse down a little alley in Melbourne’s CBD is an unassuming setting for Stoneleigh’s latest immersive wine tasting pop-up: the Stoneleigh Project.
The space is transformed into a series of installations which showcase the winemaking process from inception to completion. Experience the flowing virtual river scattered with ancient river stones; the mirror room depicting the rays of sunlight which nourish the grapes and the impressive room of floating wild yeast bubbles that reach from floor to ceiling.
As you wind your way through the space you’ll be mesmerised by internationally-acclaimed artist Susi Sie’s macro videography which was inspired by Stoneleigh’s Wild Valley Pinot Noir; and if your appreciation for art is comparable only to your appreciation for wine then you can also sample the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir from Stoneleigh’s Wild Valley range.
This exhibition is totally free and culminates at a pop-up bar and cellar door where you can purchase a bottle (or three) to take home. Head to the website to secure your spot; your ticket is valid throughout the day, so feel free to arrive anytime between opening hours. You can also register at the entrance on arrival.
