Located in the heart of Melbourne's southeast, Murrumbeena Wine Bar is the kind of top-quality neighbourhood joint you wish was your local. And you've just scored a stack of new reasons to pay a visit, as the venue kicks off its fresh series of artisan-led Sunday sessions.

Soulful Sundays are all about local makers and producers — not just celebrating them, but also inviting punters along for an in-depth exploration of what they're doing. On select Sundays, the doors will be closed to the public and the entire venue thrown over to a different local business for an immersive afternoon of artisan appreciation.

The lineup is diverse, spanning winemakers, distillers, artists, cheesemakers and a whole lot more. And there'll be plenty of opportunity to unleash your own creative spark, too. Coming up on April 23, you've got Seaford distillery That Spirited Lot with a guided tasting and cocktail soireé, while a Mother's Day session on May 14 will see you creating a masterpiece at a paint-and-sip session led by a local artist.

On May 28, Mrs. Baker's Stillhouse hosts a hands-on gin-blending class, and on June 4 and August 20, indoor plant boutique The Plant Whisperer will teach you the art of creating decorative terrariums. Also on the bill: cheese tastings, candle-making workshops, jewellery-making, speed-dating and more — check out the website to see what's coming up next.
