Why drink at one watering hole, when you can head to two, three, six or more? That's always been the motivation behind everyone's favourite boozy journey, aka a pub crawl. And, it's the exact same type of thinking behind the Urban Wine Walk. Taking its first wander around Brisbane after previously strolling through Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth during 2017, it's the bar-hopping excuse every vino lover has been waiting for.
Think Bite, Sip, Stroll, but without the restaurant meals — or Grapest, but without convincing yourself that you're going to run five kilometres. From midday until 5pm on February 17, you'll saunter between the likes of La Lune Wine Co, Super Whatnot, Wandering Cooks, Greenglass, Saccharomyces, The Laneway and more, sampling wines and having a mighty fine time. As for the tipples, they'll be taken care of by South Australia's Commune of Buttons and By Jingo Wines, and Queensland's Bent Rd / La Petite Mort and Cush & Cush, among others.
Early bird tickets are currently on sale for $45, with full tickets costing $55 once the initial allocation has run out. Places are limited, but this moving cellar door will not only serve up wine tastings, but also your own tasting glass — plus a voucher for another beverage, and a guide to help you plan your mosey between bars.
