Seriously Shiraz - October 29 & 30, 2020

A Grampians Wine Tasting Masterclass At Home

The Grampians, known for its warm days and cool nights, has been the perfect place for the wide variety of grapes grown in the area to thrive since planting began at St Peter's Vineyard in 1863. But if there is one variety that the region is known for, it is its distinctive Shiraz.

Join Sommelier James Boden from the National Wine Centre, Grampians Winemakers and recognised faces from the award-winning wine region who will take you on a Seriously Shiraz-filled experience, tasting wine delivered to your door.
Shiraz lovers will marvel at the cool-climate treasures that can be sampled in a choice of three virtual masterclasses and the opportunity to head online to purchase their favourites of the evening.

IN THE CELLAR Masterclass

Grampians Shiraz is well known for its cellaring ability. Participants will enjoy and learn about how this varietal evolves as it ages in the cellar.

30th October, 5.30 - 7pm
Stories of pioneers and family traditions will transport you to the enchanting wine village of Great Western.
