Winemaker For A Day

Don't just drink wine — learn how to make it.

Serious about your wine? Let's face it — whether you have expensive tastes or fancy a surprise bargain, we're all serious when it comes to enjoying a good tipple. But if you're the kind of person who spends every minute thinking about vino, you're keen to up your knowledge or you're after a boozy way to treat yourself, why not play Winemaker For A Day?

That's what Rob Dolan Wines is offering up twice this year, first on March 18 and then on November 25. You'll head out to the Warrandyte South winery and spend a couple of hours getting to know how the magic is made. Yes, you'll stomp some grapes. Of course you will. Then, you'll come back for the second session to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

The best part? At the end of it, just before Christmas, you'll end up with your own case of wine that you've had a hand — and a foot — in making. The experience doesn't come cheap at $260, however, and you'll also have to sign up to join the Rob Dolan Huddle Club. That's just an excuse for more wine though, isn't it?
