Built to Spill wine was started by Tai Tate (ex-Porteno, Mary's, P&V) in 2020, combining his love of natural wines and music. The local wine curator has since built a cult following, collaborating with the likes of Freddie Gibbs, The Chats and Cosmic Psychos. If you haven't had the opportunity to try Built to Spill's wines, Tate is bringing them to you with a series of pop-ups to close out 2022.

The wines are making five stop-overs across Sydney and its surrounds, each time bringing DJ sets, free tastings, vinyl and merch with them. The first two will be at Inner West favourites, starting at The Lansdowne's recently reopened rooftop bar on Saturday, November 26, followed by The Duke of Enmore on Saturday, December 3.

The following Saturday, December 10, these minimal intervention drops will be travelling to Laguna for a takeover of the Great Northern Trading Post. The Leichhardt Bowling Club will be the next stop on the tour on Saturday, December 17, before it all concludes at a yet-to-be-disclosed location in the Blue Mountains just before Christmas. You can follow along with the pop-up tour at the winemaker's Instagram.

Just to top off the end-of-year festivities, Built to Spill has announced a new collaboration with eccentric Australian sketch comedy trio Aunty Donna. The collab is a $30 Bottle of Wine in both concept and name. If you're looking for an appropriate bottle of wine to bring to a dinner party or social occasion, this limited-time wine tells everyone in the room just how much you spent on it — the perfect middle point for a bottle of wine, $30.

Plus, in the new year, Tate and co. have a range of events and collaborations lineup up for the new year, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more announcements to come.
