Fresh Blood Brisbane 2021
Taste your way through new drops from emerging South Australian and Victorian winemakers.
Trying new wines can be a stressful pursuit. There are just so many vinos to choose from, hailing from such a wide array of wineries, that it's hard to know where to start. Fresh Blood simplifies that process for you — by doing the choosing for you. That means that you can sit back, take whichever glass comes your way and get sipping.
It's no wonder that the concept was a hit in London, or that it is now making its Australian debut. Kicking off in Brisbane on Saturday, January 16 and Sunday, January 17, Fresh Blood's first Aussie event will focus on 16 emerging local winemakers — with Saturday's session dedicated to eight South Australian producers and Sunday's showing the love to eight of their Victorian counterparts.
Wondering what you'll be knocking back? From SA, Ada, Geyer, Moorak and VHS rank among the labels. From Victoria, Analog, Cre, Little Brunswick and Livewire are on the bill.
As a bonus, whichever day you choose to head along, you'll also taste a few drops from two imported producers — with more than 60 wines on offer across the two days. With the event taking place at Siffredi's and Zero Fox, you'll snack on bites to eat from the two restaurants as well. You've gotta line that stomach, after all, including with spaghetti and Campari soft serve.
Tickets cost $69 per day, which covers entry at 12pm, a take-home tasting glass, 30-plus wines to sip and snacks. It all runs until 4pm, and only 100 tickets are available each day — so getting in quickly is recommended.
