Forget parochial wine drinking loyalties for a day as The Fruitful Pursuit (Wine Playground) team returns with another sensory playground, Sidewineder, which celebrates wines from across the border.
With a national line-up of wines and winemakers, the all-day event (from 11.30am-5.30pm on Saturday, October 29) includes tastings, open forums, education and takeaway sales featuring wineries such as Giant Steps, Patrick Sullivan, Tolpuddle, Dr Edge and Garagiste.
More than 70 new and limited release wines will be available to try on the day, while winemaker guests include L.A.S. Vino’s Nic Peterkin (GT Young Winemaker of the Year), Stargazer’s Samantha Connew (ex-Wirra Wirra) and The Story’s Rory Lane.
Sidewineder will feature more than 70 new and limited release wines in a secret location that is 2km from the CBD.
Just like Wine Playground and The Fruitful Pursuit’s behind-the-scene wine tours, Sidewineder will be a fun and relaxed day that will allow wine lovers to connect directly with their favourite winemakers.
The venue will be announced on Friday, October 21.
