Barrel Tasting Weekend
Like eating cherries from the tree or bread just out of the oven, tasting wine from the barrel is tasting the magic of winemaking.
Held over two days, winemakers offer a tasting of their wines in barrel to give you a hint of the romance of winemaking.
Barrel halls are usually guarded treasures but on the weekend of the 10 and 11 July 2021, you will get to visit sacred barrel halls throughout the Bendigo region.
Winemakers will throw open the doors of their barrel halls and take you inside the sacred walls to taste wine straight from the barrel.
The wine will be at differing stages of maturation so you’ll be able to taste the differences between wine ageing in barrels and the bottled product.
If you fall in love with a certain drop, be sure to check with the winemaker about a pre-release purchase at a special price.
