Experience the magic happening in the wine barrels throughout the Bendigo region.

Harvest is nearly over, grapes are being crushed and fermented. But that’s just the beginning of the winemaking process. Now in cellars and barrel halls winemakers will be observing the shared relationship between wine, oak and the atmosphere.

Barrel halls are usually guarded treasures but on the weekend of 8 and 9 July you'll get to visit the sacred barrel halls throughout the Bendigo region and indulge in wine barrel alchemy. You will meet the winemakers and uncover the mystery and romance of winemaking. Wineries throwing open the doors of their barrel halls will be listed here soon.

At 11am, 1pm and 3pm on both days each winery will give you an intimate and personal experience tasting their wine from the barrel. 

Bookings essential for the 11am, 1pm and 3pm sessions on each day. Call and book your spot with each winery you'll visit.

Like eating cherries from the tree or bread just out of the oven, a visit to the barrel hall is tasting wine straight from the source. It's the ultimate sneak preview of the magic happening in wine barrels and the chance to taste future releases before anyone else.

If you fall in love with a certain drop, be sure to check with the winemaker about a pre-release purchase at a special price.
