Do you like wine? Silly question obviously, but at least I’ve got your attention.

Winter is just creeping up on us, and it’s the perfect opportunity to rug up, get comfortable and get sipping with some friends. If you’re interested in diversifying your knowledge and palette for wine, the 21st Century Vino will be hosted in Zinc at Federation Square this coming Sunday, May 17th. A forum of three master classes will be hosted from 10:30am until 4:30pm, as well as a producer showcase and open tasting from 5:00pm until 8:30pm.

The event has come to life as a result of the vision of Bruce and Jenni Chalmers, owners of Chalmers Nurseries, who since the 2000s have been a significant player in the Australian wine landscape, after they imported a selection of wines that had never before been tasted in Australia.

They have instigated 21st Century Vino as an opportunity to bring together all of their colleagues and lay down an arena for winemakers to share their passion and knowledge with the community. Over 30 producers will showcase their products, share conversations and tell their stories to the public in the effort to increase the understanding and participation in the wine industry.

Tickets cost between $30 for the Exploration event at the end of the day and $150 for the whole day of Conversation, Celebration & Exploration events. All tickets are available online.
