Saturday, 14 November 2015 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Palace Hotel, 2 New Montgomery St


Taste over 150 of the world's best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Oregon, California and New Zealand, as well as iconic Rhone blends as only California can make them.  This is the perfect chance to compare and contrast winemaking styles and terroirs to determine what you love the most, all while talking to the winemakers who make the award-winning wines. 

All wines at this walkabout tasting have been rated RP 90 points or higher, and were handpicked for the event by Robert Parker Wine Advocate Editor in Chief Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW, and Reviewer Jeb Dunnuck. Both will be on hand throughout the event to discuss the wines and answer questions.

Book your walkabout ticket below to enjoy an afternoon of the world's best wines.

 

To take it a step further, add an optional master class (or all three) to your tasting. Masterclass seats are limited.
