A hands on, interactive experience where you play winemaker, then take home a bottle of your favourite blend.

Working with three barrel samples of single vineyard wine, each with distinctive flavours, you are guided through the blending process to create your own personalised Shiraz. The physical work is done, the picking, fermenting, foot treading and basket pressing, now you have the opportunity to create something truly unique.

Once you’ve selected your final blend, you bottle a 750ml sample and take home to show off to your friends.
