Valentine’s Day gift idea! Take your wine-nerd other half to the Sydney Royal Wine Experience.
This is a public opportunity to taste the wines entered in the Sydney Royal Wine Show 2015. There are expected to be over 1,000 awarded wines, including the gold-medal and trophy winners. You can graze on cheeses and other Sydney Royal winning produce, and talk to exhibitors and enjoy live music. And you can take a tour with a wine judge. Ticket entry includes all of this plus a free Riedel wineglass to take home.
Visit the Macquarie Group Sydney Royal Wine Show website for more information and to buy tickets – individual tickets, double passes and group discounts are available. Numbers are limited.

Final reminder of my pinot noir masterclass, co-hosted by myself and Michael Dhillon of Bindi Wines (tastings). There are still a few tickets available (click here for details). We will be serving and discussing, comparing and contrasting six of the greatest pinots from Australia and New Zealand, covering all the major pinot regions of each country. Pinot-friendly food will be available.
