Discover the best wines for 2019!

Join us in Market Square for a special showcase event of the 13th annual Young Gun of Wine: Top 50, Saturday 13 April from 7pm – 10pm.

You’ll get the chance to taste an exciting mix of drops from the Top 50 list, with 100 different wines up for sampling (including 13 winemakers from Victoria). There’ll be delicious tastes to nibble on whilst you sip, from Market Traders Maker & Monger and Q Le BAKER. We’ll also be welcoming special guests Matilda 159, who’ll be cooking over hot coals at the firepit, and The Alps Wine Shop & Bar serving drops from past winners from their pop-up bar.

This ain’t no regular wine tasting. And it’s not just a party. It’s a gathering of the leading edge of emerging winemakers shaping the future of the Australian wine identity. Come mainline what is hot and happening right now, and be a part of this community. For more info, visit the Young Gun of Wine website here.
