Can’t make it to Rutherglen for your vino fix? Not to worry, the winemakers are coming to you this spring

A pop-up wine bar will set up shop in Melbourne this September for a two-day wine event they’re calling Rutherglen in the City.

Running from Saturday September 22 to Sunday September 23, punters can try Rutherglen’s best drops when they set up shop at the Atrium at Federation Square.

The pop-up comes from the Winemakers of Rutherglen, a collective of 19 wineries from the historic wine region in north-east Victoria. Throughout the weekend, the Atrium will be transformed into a pop-up wine and cocktail bar with 17 cellar doors for wine tasting so you can get familiar with Rutherglen muscat, durifs, sparkling reds, and aromatic whites like marsanne, viognier, roussanne and ugni blanc.

Up for a drive? Here’s our guide to wining and dining in Rutherglen.
