Pinot Palooza 2021
Two days dedicated to tasting the best burgundy from the southern hemisphere.
Master sommelier Madeline Triffon describes pinot noir as 'sex in a glass'. Winemaker Randy Ullom calls it 'the ultimate nirvana'. Broadway wannabe Titus Andromedon loved it so much he compares it to 'caviar, Myanmar, mid-size car' (see below).
No wonder the good folk at Revel — who've also brought Malbec Day and Mould our way — are coming back to town with Pinot Palooza, an epic travelling wine festival celebrating all things peeeno noir. For just two days, Sydney wine connoisseurs will have the chance to sample more than 100 drops, direct from Australia and New Zealand's best producers.
Whether you're a newbie who wants to start with something light and inviting, or a pinot pro ready for the biggest, most complex mouthful on the menu, there'll be an abundance of selections at either end — and plenty along the spectrum, too. If, at any point, you need to take a pause in your tasting adventures, you'll be catered for.
Pinot Palooza will hit Carriageworks on Friday, October 1 (from 4.30–8.30pm) and Saturday, October 2 (from 11am–3pm and 4–8pm). Tickets are $65, and include all tastings and a take-home wine glass.
