Bubbly pét-nat wines, snacks by one of Melbourne's top chefs and a Beach Boys-inspired soundtrack delivered by a group of musical legends — all aboard a boat. It's one of the season's most unique wine events and it's happening in Melbourne next weekend.
Brought to by the team behind boutique booze-slingers Blackhearts & Sparrows, Pét Sounds is all about celebrating the naturally sparkling wine the French call pétillant naturel, or pét-nat for short.
Held on the Victoria Star Ferry next Sunday, March 25, the event's set to feature a whole bunch of these lightly fizzy wines, at retail prices, alongside brews from Mornington Peninsula Brewery and some top-notch canapé action courtesy of Lȗmé's Shaun Quade.
As for the tunes — a nod to the cruisy sounds of the Beach Boys — they'll be served up by DJ Nick Verwey and a very special supergroup of Mark Wilson (Jet), Davey Lane (You Am I), Marty Frawley (Twerps), Nick Imfeld (Tyrannamen) and Dan Kelly.
Your ticket gets you a four-hour cruise around the bay, a glass of wine on arrival and complimentary canapés, plus access to really well-priced pét-nat and craft beers while onboard.
