Melburnians can enjoy a taste of Rutherglen wine region without leaving the CBD when the Rutherglen in the City pops up in The Strand Melbourne's Driver Lane over the weekend of August 25-27 for a one-time-only three-day wine event.

Rutherglen in the City will bring the essence and wines of the iconic Rutherglen wine region giving Melburnians the opportunity to taste and learn more about the region's unique wine varietals and its winemakers. Driver Lane will be transformed into a winter wine bar right in the heart of the city with fairy lights, wine barrels, Australian foliage, communal furniture, acoustic tunes and a mock cellar door.

Wine enthusiasts will have the opportunity to chat with local winemakers, learn a bit more about wine making, try a new varietal and sample the region's wines and indulge in some local produce (pair with a glass of Rutherglen's best wines of course!)

Revered world-wide for its fortified wines, the Winemakers of Rutherglen are trying new ways with Muscat with a range of Muscat cocktails on offer, think Muscat Coolers, Muscat Sangria and Muscat Espresso Martinis.

It's a one-off event, not to be missed and an ideal way to warm up your winter.
