Barrel Tasting Weekend

Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July 2018

Free to attend

Get exclusive access to the barrel halls of Bendigo wineries

Do you enjoy wine and want to know more about where this glorious stuff comes from? On the weekend of 7th and 8th July, Bendigo region wineries open their sacred barrel halls so you can taste wine straight from the barrel. Like eating cherries from the tree or bread just out of the oven, tasting, wine from the barrel is tasting the magic of winemaking. 

At 11am, 1pm and 3pm on both days, winemakers will give you a hint of the mystery and romance of winemaking from inside the barrel. Take your pick from one winery. Or better yet, make a day of it and visit more than one! 


Call each winery you'd like to visit and book your barrel tasting. It's free to attend.
