Redfern is getting its very own cellar door courtesy of the team at contemporary winery Cake Wines. Located in a renovated warehouse on Eveleigh Street, this inner-city venture from Cake Wines founders Glen Cassidy, Sarah Burvill and Mike Smith will host tastings, workshops and a number of other cultural events all built around the love of a good glass of wine.

Opening Thursday, March 10, the cellar door will, according to the Cake Wines team, "be an absolute representation of everything we're about, bringing people together to enjoy great wine in a relaxed and unintimidating environment". Aside from the cellar door at Nomad, it looks to be the only one located in the confines of the inner-city.

There are plans to run casual wine education classes, tasting, talks, low-key Thursdays, Friday dance parties and Saturday afternoon gigs, as well as various other events, with the view to incorporate other ideas across a number of different disciplines. They've already partnered with March's Art Month, and you can expect more collaborations with major cultural festivals, including Vivid in May.

Visitors will be able to sample Cake Wines' 2014 and 2015 wines by the glass or the bottle, along with a number of other local small-batch wines. They'll also have a range of locally-made beers, ciders and spirits, along with a selection of meats and cheeses.

The Cake Wines Cellar door opens Thursday, March 10 at 16 Eveleigh Street, Redfern. For more information visit
