The Melbourne International Film Festival is teaming up with Blackhearts & Sparrows for the second year of Wine Down, a day dedicated to some of the best locally made drops in town. The boutique bottle-o will take over The Forum Theatre on Saturday, August 12 for wine, chats and more wine.

For $35, punters will get the chance to meet the makers and taste the booze from 15 of the region's top producers, including winemakers from Clonakilla, Jamsheed and Bobar; brewers from Mornington Peninsula Brewery, La Sirene Brewing and Sailors Grave Brewing; and liquor providore Maidenii Vermouth.

The Wine Down tasting sessions will take place from 12.30pm to 2.30pm and 3.30pm to 5.3opm, with a free 'Not Serious Wine Chats' event happening from 2.30pm to 3.30pm — it deals with quality versus price of a bottle and how to tell what's worth buying. No ticket purchase is necessary for the chat, but it's not quite the same without the promise of wine before and/or after.

Tickets are on sale now and prices include a  fancy Riedel Ouverture Wine Glass to take home. The 2016 event sold out, so best get steppin'.
