These sessions are one of the more entertaining and informative classes. Separated into groups of four, you’ll sit down with our head winemaker and be taken through six single variety red wines, exploring the aroma, structure and palate-feel of each.
Each group is then given measuring cylinders and half an hour to come up with their favourite blend, for example, mixing 50% shiraz, 30% merlot, 10% petit verdot and 10% tempranillo. These ‘favourite blends’ are then collated and poured to the groups, so they can be blind-tasted and judged by everyone involved – with an ultimate winner appointed on the day.
If you really like your blend, you can purchase a dozen of your wine with your own personalised label – delivered to your door the following week.
Classes run Monday and Tuesday from 3pm-5pm
Monthly sessions held on second Sunday of each month from 3pm-5pm
Be toured through the winery by our head winemaker and learn about the art of the wine making process. Arriving at the tasting table, there is a six-glass wine-flight set up for each person, where we walk everyone through six wines from three different wine regions of NSW.
Explore the aroma, structure and palate-feel of each wine whilst enjoying a charcuterie and cheese platter.
Take home a bottle of A.Retief wine to remember the experience.
