Free Tasting Temptation
There's only one thing better than a free wine tasting and that's 5-free wine tastings.

That's exactly what you'll get if you visit all 5 participating wineries during the Bendigo Barrel Tasting Weekend to be staged on Saturday and Sunday 8th & 9th July.

The grapes are grown & picked and the 2017 vintage is ready for early tasting at 5 great Bendigo district wineries.


With this year's vintage crushed and fermenting, The Bendigo & District Winegrowers Association is supporting five Bendigo district wineries who will open the doors to their barrel halls for tastings direct from the barrel.

This is a great opportunity to get in early, pick what you think will be a sure-fired winner when bottled and negotiate a special pre-release purchase with the winery concerned.
