The Drop In: Reds Edition – The Rise of Alternative Varieties

June 21, 2024

Who doesn’t love sipping on a glass of delicious red wine and sitting by a fire?

Well, this June you can do just that at the National Wine Centre of Australia… with The Drop In: Reds Edition – The Rise of Alternative Varieties!

Join us on Friday the 21st June from 5:30pm for a showcase of delectably rich alternative reds from producers all around the country. We’re talking Barbera, Tempranillo, Aglianico, Mencia, Blaufrankisch…and so many more! Come in and try them all, and discover a new favourite you might never have heard of.

Entry to the event includes unlimited wine tastings from all participating producers and a complimentary Spiegelau glass to savour your favourite pours. Our bar also boasts a selection of beverages available for purchase, as well as some tasty food options. The event will conclude at 8pm, in time to head into the city for dinner or further kick-ons!

Don’t forget – there will be 2free discovery sessions for you to attend as well! Join Chalmers and Hoffmann Family Vineyards for some insightful Q&A sessions talking things alternative varieties and the future of these grapes in Australia.
