One Block Summer Series

Wine, cheese and not a New Year's resolution in sight.

If you're planning to attempt a dry January, this event probably isn't for you. For the first time, independent artisan wine producers One Block are holding four cellar door events throughout the month. Each Sunday, Chestnut Hill Vineyard in West Gippsland — about an hour and a half from Melbourne — will play host to One Block for its new Summer Series.

The event will give you the opportunity to sample popular and soon-to-be released drops from One Block and winemaker Jayden Ong's other ventures La Maison de Ong, Moonlit Forest and NAS (preservative-free). And what is a wine tasting without some paired snacks? Enter Yarra Valley Dairy, who'll be there to fulfil your fromage needs, while Meatsmith Specialty Butcher will be getting the wood-fired grill going.

The first three weeks are free, but the finale on January 28 is ticketed. At $49 per person, the ticket includes admission, a reserved table, lunch by Meatsmith and entertainment. Anyone who has tasted a One Block drop at Cumulus Inc. (which Ong co-owns) knows it's worth lifting the New Year's resolution drinking ban for.
