Urban Winery Project

Roll up your trousers for a good ol' grape stomp.

Feast on some of Melbourne's best at the fifth annual Urban Winery Project, where a whole winery will be transported to the city, allowing punters to get fully immersed, knee-deep style, in the magic of wine making.

The Urban Winery Project will run over four consecutive Wednesdays this March. Creator David Bowley, from South Australian winery Vinteloper, says the event is replacing the old tannin-talking guy in a tweed jacket, and giving you a much more fun way chance to glimpse behind the red wine curtain.

Over the four weeks, the event will host some of the city's top chefs, including Ryan Flaherty (Mister Jennings) and Peter Gunn (Attica, and the soon-to-be permanent IDES) who will prepare a four-course feast while you crush, press and ferment your grapes. MoVida's Frank Camorra will make an appearance in week three, treating you to a night of shared Spanish cuisine, while butcher and American barbecue maestro Scott Gould will team up with Pot & Pan's Sam and Celeste Gant to teach you the art of smoking your own meats to finish up the series.

The Urban Winery Project kicks off on Wednesday, March 2. To book tickets, visit
