Online/Virtual Tastings

HOW DOES IT WORK? You buy a pre-organised box of wines, the morning of the event, we will send you the login details for the event, which will start at 6:30pm that night. We will be opening 3 bottles (enough to get a good taste and comparison, but not too many that it's wasteful!) and discussing them.

WHO RUNS THEM? Our Head Wine Buyer Mark Faber runs these events (he's already running the majority of our in-person events, so there's no real change there). For our online events, we have brought in our mates from around the industry, from both here and overseas to host events depending on what the topic is! We've previously had winemakers such as Peter Fraser (Yangarra), Steve Pannell, (SC Pannell) as well as winemakers from Italy and France!

HOW MUCH ARE TICKETS? The best news is, these are FREE! You've got to buy the wines to taste along with our team, but we all need some wine at home during this period, don't we? We'll be offering 6 packs and dozen boxes, depending on the tasting.
