Twelve of Australia's best young winemakers will be gathering in Melbourne on Saturday, June 1, and you're invited to spend an afternoon in their company. You'll be sampling their latest drops, asking all the questions and, ultimately, deciding who decides to get take home the 13th Young Gun of Wine People's Choice Award.

To be part of wine history in the making — and play James Halliday for the day — you need to snag a $45 (or $55 after May 25) ticket and rock up at midday. The event, being held by City Wine Shop, will be happening at St Martins Youth Arts Centre. As well as wine, there'll be burgers and vegan fare from 24-hour Melbourne favourite Butchers Diner.

Four states and some of Australia's most famous wineries are represented in the Young Gun list of finalists — including Andrew Scott from La Petite Mort in Queensland's Granite Belt, Sacha La Forgia from the Adelaide Hills Distillery, Ben Ranken from Macedon Ranges' Wilimee and Rhys Parker and Paul Hoffman from Vallée du Venom in the Margaret River. If, on the day, any particular drops takes your fancy, you'll be able to buy bottles at cellar door prices.
