Four independent winemakers (The Vinsurgents) were hanging out and talking about how good it would be if people who loved food and wine could get together and celebrate that love together in a more relaxed right-brain way, without too much rhetorical and industry bollocks.
Thus, the seeds for Barrel Hall were sown.
The Barrel Hall is a temporary inner-city cellar door, wine bar, banquet hall and classroom, which will run for 23 days from 13 October to 4 November in Brunswick Street.
There’ll be guest chefs creating different atmospheres along with their treats and the Vinsurgents will be on hand to chat about good plonk. There’ll also be wicked meals of good cheer, a couple of special events (which you can book a seat at), and lots of local smallgoods and other trimmings of the table that makes food time the best time!
WHEN: Starts Saturday, 13 October, and runs until 4 November, runs Thurs-Tue, from 12pm til late
WHERE: Upstairs, 413 Brunswick St Fitzroy (above Brother Burger and the Marvellous Brew, enter via Westgarth St)
