• Barrel Wine Tasting Weekend


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 11th and 12th July 2020, Bendigo region wineries will 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. 

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 at differing stages of maturation so you’ll be able to taste the differences between wine ageing in barrels and then the bottled product.

If you fall in love with a certain drop, be sure to check with the winemaker about a pre-release purchase at a special price. 

Stay tuned for more details on the specifics of the 2020 event – in the meantime you can sign up to the Bendigo Winegrowers Association newsletter for the latest information.
