A heap of boutique wineries will be pouring their vinos at Into The Valley, a free pop-up taking place in Collingwood for three weeks in September.
September 14, 2023
Calling all wine lovers (so basically, everyone). A new event is coming to Collingwood giving you the chance to sample some of the best wines Yarra Valley has to offer, all for free.
Into The Valley is a collaboration between the Yarra Valley Smaller Wineries Association and Collingwood's zero-waste cafe Into Coffee. It will take place every Thursday night for three weeks from September 21 and will star wine from 14 of the Yarra Valley's best boutique wineries.
Each night will have two tasting slots, 6–7pm and 7–8pm, and will be capped at 50 people, so bookings are essential. And, while the wine tastings are free, plenty of bottles will be available to purchase directly if you happen to find a drop you simply must take home.
You'll have the chance to meet the winemakers, learn about their wines and taste some truly unique drops — all while enjoying the company of other Melbourne wine enthusiasts.
If you've been hanging to head to the Yarra Valley, or been meaning to expand your palate, this might just be what you've been praying for. With hundreds of wines on offer — from the classics to the boundary-pushing — you might just find your new favourite vino. Hey, you might just find your soulmate.
At the very least, you'll find the perfect place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine with friends on a lovely Thursday night in spring.
