St Kilda,


Wine Tasting

This event has finished

It's the nation's one and only event where you can walk around wearing a shirt that says 'pinotphile' while enthusiastically swilling, spitting and swallowing over 100 red, red wines and not get arrested.

Dan Sims and Jess Ho, the Bottle Shop Concepts duo determined to take the wank out of wine drinking, are once again holding Pinot Palooza: a day filled with 150 Australia and New Zealand pinots, sweet tunes and Rockwell and Son's fried chicken (hey!)

Anything could happen. Here are just some of the magical experiences Sims and Ho predict could be yours for the lowly price of a ticket:

1. You might actually enjoy a wine tasting for once
2. Huxtable and Rockwell and Sons will put food in your face
3. You might get you way through 150 different types of pinot
4. You might be seduced by a burgundy pouring sommelier
5. You'll tell yourself you will catch the tram home, but treat yourself to an Uber instead and be greeted with an interesting credit card bill.

Pinot Palooza kicks off this Saturday at 1pm. Get on it.
