Meet the Makers
Time Out says
Taste up to 60 wines and meet the cool cats who make them
How do you choose your wine? Do you buy something your friend brought to dinner that one time? Maybe you always stick to the brand or two you can remember? Or do you just pick whichever label is prettiest and/or has the most stickers?
There is a better way to buy wine, and that is by tasting a lot of it, talking to the people who make it and working out what you actually like. Cellarmasters is holding a special event so you can do just that, tasting wines from across Australia, including the most awarded Chardonnay in Tasmania (Riverdale Estate's Crader Chardonnay) and Blood Brother Republic BBR McLaren Vale Grenache, which won James Halliday's 'grenache challenge'. Even better, the winemakers themselves will be on hand to talk you through what you're tasting and work out what you like.
If you get hungry with all that tasting and chatting, there will also be a cheese and antipasto grazing station, as well as canapés. Tickets also include a glass of sparkling on arrival.
