Brisbane: City Winery Wine Blending Workshop

2. Brisbane: City Winery Wine Blending Workshop

Visit the first winery to launch in Brisbane since 1860 and work with the winemaker or group sommelier to blend up your own bottle of wine. Discover the venue's signature Gerler wines that are named after the city’s last winemaker and viticulturist, Carl Gerler, and largely made onsite by acclaimed winemaker, Dave Cush. To get there, take a mere 4-minute drive from Brisbane CBD. Once at the venue, find a fully functioning micro-winery, cellar door, and restaurant with private dining for groups up to 20 people. Then, begin your fun and informative session that combines wine tasting with winemaking principles. Learn about the various elements that go into blending a bottle of wine — such as whole bunch, pressings, and half-whole bunch — and the art of getting the mix right. Finally, bottle and seal your own unique blend, label it, and have it signed by the winemaker.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and wine tasting at City Winery in Brisbane. We arrived an hour early (as our early activities had ended early in the area) and they happily accommodated us by sitting us early as they were not overly busy. Our server, Sofie, was fantastic she was very pleasant, engaging and informative. She explained each wine we tasted and customized the wine selection to our tastes being very flexible. The meal was amazing and plentiful. We felt this was an excellent experience and a great value.
