Consider yourself a bit of a wine expert? Can you swish with the best of them? Can you hold long conversations about tasting notes and ageing barrels? Or are you more in the Leslie Knope school of thought when it comes to wine sampling — couldn't tell you the difference between a Cab Sav and a Merlot, but it's tasty and I'll go with it?
Wherever you sit on this spectrum, Mental Notes promises to have something for everybody on the wine enthusiast scale. Returning for their third event on September 23, both levels of the Lansdowne Hotel will be hosting winemakers from all over Australia, giving keen wine-drinkers the opportunity to taste a cheeky wine, or three. With over a hundred wines available for the tasting, you can drink your way through the country's vineyards, and learn a trick or two from the winemakers themselves.
If this wasn't already a pretty sweet deal, there will also be a smattering of food on the day to complement (read: soak up) some of that sweet wine goodness thanks to the venue. Hosted by Joel Amos (DRNKS) as well Kenneth Graham and Jake Smyth of Mary's, The Unicorn and the Landsdowne fame, there will also be a casual bar operating during the wine tasting — with a wine list that will be changing every hour — because, can you ever really have enough booze at a wine event?
