Pinot Palooza Returns To Melbourne

AUSTRALIA | Never considered wine to be the touring kind? Pinot Palooza is here to change that for you.

Returning to Melbourne in 2015 is Pinot Palooza, an all Pinot wine festival. This day-long event, held around Australia (Perth and Adelaide were in August. Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane will be in October) aims to bring 150 of the best Pinots the Southern Hemisphere has to offer. With so many Pinots on hand, We’re predicting Sideways-style antics to dominate proceedings.

The festival comes from the people behind Game of Rhones, which leads us to think your pallet will be in very good hands. On offer at this year’s event include wine from wineries such as Bay of Fires, Two Paddocks, and Pegasus Bay, and you’ll even be able to vote on your favourite for the day.

There will also be a selection of food available from local culinary luminaries, with Melbourne’s show featuring Jack Horner, Burn City Smokers, and the always dependable Huxtaburger setting up for the event. And if for some reason you need a break from drinking wine, Sample beer will be on hand for your hop-based needs.

Tickets come as a standard pass for $60 (includes entry and a Riedel ‘Heart to Heart’ Pinot Noir take-away glass), and a VIP pass for $95 (includes entry, a glass, a tour from a sommelier, and a food voucher). Of special note, there’s no tokens here, so you can try everything, but for your own health, you probably shouldn’t. There’s also a back stage pass and a master class available for the Pinot-obsessed, but you’ll have to check out the website for details on those.

The Pinot Palooza is a welcome addition to the Australia’s drinking calendar. Tickets are on sale now.
