Rutherglen in the City
Time Out says
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 once again set up shop in Melbourne this October for a two-day wine event they’re calling Rutherglen in the City.
Running from Saturday, October 5 to Sunday, October 6, 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 16 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 more than 100 wines up for tasting so you can get familiar with Rutherglen muscat, durifs, sparkling reds, and aromatic whites like marsanne, viognier, roussanne and ugni blanc.
There will be live music and plenty of food. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased on the door. All wine tastings are included in the price, as is a GoVino tasting glass to keep.
