As a group of winemakers we met in May to taste each other's wines from the barrel
Barrel wines were gathered at a blind tasting and each winemaker saw how their wines were perceived to gain impartial and valuable feedback. Our benchmarking exercises play a big part in the continual improvements in the quality of Bendigo region wines and in our winemaking techniques.
You have the chance to taste wine straight from the barrel on July 9th and 10th as eight winemakers let you in on the magic happening right now in their barrel halls. Tasting wine straight from the source will draw you into the mystery and romance to be found in the art of wine making. Click for booking information and participating wineries.
As the cooler weather descends on the Bendigo wine region you’ll find our winemakers in the vineyard pruning vines in their winter dormancy. This is the season to prepare yourself a warm hearty meal and enjoy one of the rich ripe reds from our region.
