Barrel Tasting Weekend

Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th July 2019
11am, 1pm and 3pm
Free to attend

Get exclusive access to the barrel rooms of Bendigo’s wineries

Do you enjoy wine and want to know more about where this glorious stuff comes from? On the weekend of 6th and 7th July, Bendigo region wineries throw open the doors of their barrel rooms 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 take you on a tour of their barrel rooms and give you a hint of the romance of winemaking with wine samples straight from their barrels. The wine will be a differing stages of maturation so you’ll be able to taste the differences between wine aging in barrels and then the bottled product.

Choose your barrel tasting session time and the winery you would like to visit. Or better yet, make a day of it and visit more than one winery! 

Barrel tasting sessions are free to attend but you need to book as places are limited. Bookings will open in late-May. Join our mailing list to be notified when bookings open.
