WINE SELECTORS CELLAR DOOR SESSIONS
Friday 23 – Sunday 25 August
Join the team for an intimate chat while we taste some great Australian wines direct from the cellar doors of Australia and talk about starting wine collecting and cellaring.
How to start a collection and how to properly cellar wines are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive at Wine Selectors. These relaxed, interactive sessions are designed to give wine lovers an overview of wine collecting and the benefits (or not!) of cellaring certain styles of wine.
Learn the basics about cellaring and ageing wines then start your journey of discovering the best of Australian wine with Wine Selectors.
