Winemakers of Rutherglen have been doing good things with grapes for a while now out in northeast Victoria. But, luckily for us, they've decided to come city-side again this October for a two-day wine event, Rutherglen in the City.

The pop-up cellar door will situate itself inside The Atrium at Federation Square. Sixteen winemakers will take over the high-ceilinged space, transforming it into an inner city 'winery' with over 100 different drops — so you can forget you're sandwiched between Flinders Street and the MCG and dream of open plains and vineyards.

For $10, you'll get a free glass and be able to sample the best of the region's wine varieties — including durif and muscat — and a few different wine-heavy cocktails at the bar. The winemakers themselves will also be on-hand for a chat, and, if something takes your fancy, you can even order a few bottles from them direct. There'll be a range of masterclasses you can partake in, too.

Full glasses of wine and other drinks can be purchased from the bar, and some nosh will be on sale. The best thing about it is you won't even have to drive home — thanks to trams and trains, you can have as many wines as you like.

Rutherglen in the City will run from 12–5pm.
