Gone are the days when a wine tasting meant travelling all the way to the Hunter Valley — or the Barossa. Cellar doors have evolved into urban creatures, found in inner city neighbourhoods, like Moore Park and Chippendale.

Now, Sydney is set to become home to the world's first cellar door at seaTaylor's Wines, who hail from South Australia's Clare Valley, will be setting sail on Sydney Harbour this summer. For just one weekend, you'll have the chance to climb aboard a dedicated barge and spend an hour sipping and swirling. All tastings will take place in a glass-walled room, ensuring the views are relentlessly watery and panoramic. Plus, there'll be just 12 people in each session.

Your $60 ticket includes canapés curated by Will Stewart and Steve Flood (a.k.a. The Gourmet Pommies), as well as water taxi rides to and from Man O'War Steps at The Sydney Opera House.

Cellar Door at Sea will take place between Friday, December 7 and Sunday, December 9, from 11am–9pm each day.
