2022 Post Vintage Tasting

21/07/2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Pinot, Shiraz, White & Red ‘Alternate’ varieties in Focus

Join us for a regional catch up to discuss the 2022 season and benchmark your wines in a casual tasting environment. The informal nature is intended for all participants to gain an understanding of where they have performed well and where they may need to focus to make some improvements. It will be a self-guided tasting and the connection and conversation you make with others in the room is key.

Bring your best, your worst or all of your wines. In order to have some context, we would encourage only Pinot noir, Shiraz and any or all or your ‘Alternate’ varieties from 2022.

This invitation is open to all production staff and we encourage junior staff to come along to have an opportunity to taste and learn about the season and to connect with others.

A level of professional confidentiality is expected and we would hope that all discussions are productive and supportive.


  • Only bring fresh samples that have been sulphured – this is a benchmarking exercise
  • Only Yarra Valley GI samples
  • 2 x 750mL bottles of each sample is required, bring them with you
  • Provide as little or as much information as you are comfortable with
    e.g. vineyard name, Clone/ Rootstock, planting density, MLF status, pH, TA, ALC…
