Kick off the Easter long weekend by celebrating female winemakers, supporting a worthy cause, and discovering your new favourite drop! 

Melbourne’s popular midweek wine-tasting event, Into The Vines, is finally making its debut in Sydney on Wednesday, March 27th. Mark your calendars and prepare to raise a glass to some incredible female winemakers.

Held at the Freshwater Brewing Co. in Brookvale, this first Sydney event promises a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. For just $15, attendees can sample over 25 small-batch wines directly from five pioneering women in the wine industry.

Cheers to celebrating female winemakers

The impressive lineup includes Empire of Dirt, a lo-fi boutique winery by Tash Webster from Moorabool Valley, showcasing their recently launched 2023 Pinot Noir, aptly named “F*ck the Patriarchy.” Winemaker Chrissie Smith, a single mum of three, will also be pouring from her Intrepedius Wines label, crafted with minimal intervention from her one-acre plot in Yass, ACT. 

Forget stuffy wine tastings – Into The Vines is all about making wine fun and accessible. This interactive event allows you to explore new varietals and blends from family-owned wineries, chat directly with the winemakers, and discover your new favourite drop. Plus, there will be special offers on bottles to take home, ensuring the good times continue long after the event.

To accompany the tasting, Freshwater Brewing Co. is whipping up a spread from their newly revamped menu, featuring mouthwatering tacos, juicy burgers, and fresh salads. They’ll also be offering a special $25 burger and pint deal, perfect for soaking up the delicious wines. Pre-order your food along with your ticket, or order straight from the menu on the night.
