Game of Rhones

Wine is coming

This event has finished

Listen up Westeros and wine fans (which, last time we checked, included everybody ever). Winter is coming, and while you may be a long way from Rhone (really, it’s in France), you’re only a ticket away from a day of Game of Thrones-style drinking.

When winter finally gets its arse in gear and arrives, Wine Guide writer Dan Sims will be filling ornate Ormond Hall with grenaches, marsannes, rousannes and other grape varieties of the Rhone region in France made by producers from all over Victoria and beyond the wall in New Zealand and the US.

“Will there be a pig on a spit, and wolves and incest?” we hear you cry. Sims is being coy on the details to maintain the element of surprise (also, sourcing a menagerie of beasts is harder than you’d think) but he says probably, he hopes so and he hopes not, respectively. He does promise he’ll be wearing a cloak and drinking out or a horn, though. We can also promise there will be over 100 wines to taste, and theme-appropriate food available.

Book in. Dress up (if you want). And make sure you watch the YouTube trailers.
