At the Yarra Valley's new two-day wine tasting celebration, you can start 2022 as you wish to continue: sipping top-notch local vino with mates while soaking up a few rollicking party tunes. The inaugural Pulp will descend on the garden at the Healesville Hotel on Saturday, January 15 and Sunday, January 16, serving up a weekend showcase of quality regional drops, plus chats with some of the area's most celebrated winemakers.

Across both days, punters will have the chance to sample the latest wares from a range of independent and small-batch Yarra Valley producers, for $15 for one day, or $25 for a two-day pass. In the lineup, expect both emerging and well-known names, including Solar Wines, Musical Folk, Tillie J, Alkimi Wines, Honky Chateau, Fetherston, Ben Haines and more.

Want a side of knowledge with that? In between tastings, catch local legends like Rob Dolan Wines' Meg Brodtmann MW, Giant Steps' Steve Flamsteed and Mac Forbes himself chatting about innovation and diversity in winemaking at a series of panels.

Goodys HiFi will be supplying each evening's post-sip soundtrack, and there'll be barbecue eats and plenty more wine to buy onsite.
