Blend baby blend: Make your own red wine

Balancing a perfectly blended wine creates a result that is greater than the sum of its parts – do you have what it takes? Discover your inner winemaker on this full day wine experience which includes an exclusive hands-on red wine blending workshop, where you will work with some of the best winemakers in Perth to handcraft your ‘perfect blend’, which is yours to take home and enjoy.

THIS WINE BLENDING TOUR IS A SPECIAL EVENT AVAILABLE FOR ONE WEEK A YEAR ONLY!
IN 2017, THIS IS AVAILABLE FOR SIX SESSIONS ONLY FROM THE 21ST TO 26TH OF NOVEMBER (ONCE PER DAY). IF YOU MISS OUT, YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL 2018 FOR THIS EXPERIENCE.

 
This is the ultimate wine tour for wine-lovers, for people who want to learn more about wine, or for those that think they missed their calling as a winemaker!

Many of the great red wines of the world are blends of several grape varietals, and we go beyond the barrel on this full day wine tour to take you behind the scenes where you will work one-on-one with one of the best winemaking teams in the region.

The winemakers will take you on a tasting journey through different red wine grape varietals and the art of blending – you will then take to the blending bench yourself to be a winemaker for an afternoon to create your own signature blend to bottle and take home to share with friends.

  • Take a full tour behind the scenes of the winery
  • Sample an extensive range of red wine varietals
  • Learn about the strength and weakness of each variety
  • Tailor-make your own blended red wine
  • Label and bottle your blend to take home

We will also visit some other stunning wineries to sample their wines, and enjoy a delicious vineyard lunch of regional produce as you take in the views of the picturesque Bickley Valley. After your blending session we will finish the day with a cheese platter.

All tours are limited to 12 people maximum, so you will get a personalised and memorable experience. Bookings need to be confirmed a minimum of 14 days in advance as the wine needs to be prepared for blending.
