A new wine festival is coming to Brisbane — but this one doesn't just want you to just stand around and drink. Sure, there's a lot of that on the menu at Wine Playground. In fact, there'll be more than 50 different vinos on offer for your sampling pleasure. Between mouthfuls, however, this fest will be letting you mingle with some of the country's best winemakers.

From 12pm on Saturday, July 7, folks from 13 different outfits will be serving up tastings, selling their wares and chatting with you about everything that goes into making good plonk. The lineup casts its eye around the nation, so prepare to send your wine-loving tastebuds on a journey. On the bill: Queensland's La Petite Mort; New South Wales' Frankly; Victoria's Jamsheed; South Australia's Basket Range, Small Fry and Somos; Western Australia's Brave New Wine, Dormilona, L.A.S. Vino, LS Merchants and Ravensworth; and Tasmania's Shiny and Two Tonne Tasmania.

Throw in open forums and snacks across the event's three-hour duration, and if that sounds like your ideal way to spend an afternoon, then Fortitude Valley's Happy Boy is the place to be. Tickets cost $65, which includes your own Plumm glass plus plenty — and we mean plenty — of sips.
