City Cellar Door 2019
Cumulus Up's free monthly wine tasting event.
May 03, 2019
Cumulus Up's City Cellar Door series returns for 2019, once again featuring a revolving door of Australian wine producers all keen to show off their top-notch drops. The event is the perfect opportunity to taste delicious wine, chat directly to the makers and grab your fave bottles at cellar door prices — all without leaving the CBD. And, while Victorian producers will sit in the spotlight, the series will also showcase Tasmanian wineries.
The year's series — which will run on the first Saturday of every month until October — will kick off at midday on May 4, this month paying homage to the Mornington Peninsula. Wine enthusiasts will be treated to stellar tipples from the likes of Moorooduc Estate, Allies, Quealy and Balcombe Gin. And what's wine without snacks? To make sure the event has all the trimmings, there'll be plenty to eat, including oysters, duck waffles and cured meats.
Entry is by gold coin donation, with all proceeds going to OzHarvest. This is a not-to-be-missed event for anyone who loves wine.
If you'd like to sit down for a more substantial meal, the upstairs wine bar will also be hosting four-course lunches with matched wines on July 20 and October 19. Alternatively, you can get out of the city and join a behind-the-scenes tour of vineyards as part of a wine-filled day trip on August 24 and November 16. You can find out more info and book tickets via the website.
City Cellar Door wine tastings run from midday–4pm.
