From the slew of wine bars popping up around Sydney to dedicated celebrations like Huge Moves and Pinot Palooza, vino is having a real moment. Wine has been receiving a tonne of local appreciation, and the love just keeps pouring in.

Online wine retailer Different Drop is reaching its decade milestone and to celebrate it'll be hosting a huge wine-tasting event at Sydney's Paddington Town Hall. Wine UNLEASHED! is taking over the hall from 2–5pm on Saturday, October 14, bringing an extraordinary lineup of 200-plus artisanal wines, plenty of top-notch wine importers and over 40 local wineries pouring their best drops.

Cult producers like Dr. Edge, Ravensworth, Luke Lambert, Giant Steps and Brash Higgins will all be in attendance — plus, the selection of drinks will be accompanied by some inviting snacks to enjoy as you taste your way through the afternoon.

The event will celebrate ten years since the birth of Different Drop and the beginning of its mission to make artisan wine more accessible and easier to enjoy for all of the vino lovers of Australia. The online retailer is now referred to as a "digital wine playground" by its co-founders, offering up a massive selection of hand-crafted drinks.

If you've been hoping to get in touch with some of Australia's leading producers or to discover an array of sips, new and old, this is shaping up to be the ultimate chance to do so. Wine UNLEASHED! is expecting to see upwards of 400 guests swing through the doors to sample the exclusive drops on the event's stacked program, so you'll want to secure your spot quickly.

Tickets to Different Drop's tenth birthday bash are $90, which includes all of your win samples and snacks for the day. Head over to Different Drop's Wine UNLEASHED! event page to secure your spot.
