Smashed Grapes: Pinot Noir Edition

To welcome winter in Melbourne, on Saturday 25 May Neptune will play host to a variety of winemakers from all corners of Australia as they come together for an Urban Cellar Door event, dubbed Smashed Grapes. From the rolling hills of Adelaide to the coasts of Victoria, it will offer a glimpse into the differing winemaking processes and an opportunity to compare the much-loved winter varietal from an array of premium brands including Clare Valley's Koerner Wine, BK wines from Adelaide Hills and local Shadowfax. In true Neptune style, the tunes will be buzzing alongside matched roaming aperitivo bites, offering the ideal way to escape the chill while celebrating quality food and wine.
