Wineries offer exclusive barrel tastings
A SELECTION of vineyards will this weekend offer a sneak preview of the magic happening in wine barrels across Bendigo. Eight wineries will throw open their doors for two days of exclusive barrel tasting sessions. Bendigo Winegrowers Association president Bill Blamires said the weekend was a chance for wine lovers to taste wine right from the source and enjoy some barrel alchemy. “Meet the winemakers who’ll be keen to chat about the latest vintage and taste future releases straight from the barrel,” said Mr Blamires, whose family operates the Mount Alexander Winery.
