Local Loves: Contentious Character’s Sip, Swirl and Learn Workshop + Dinner

Posted on

Ever wondered why oaked Chardonnays are described as buttery, but yours always taste woody and bland?

What about Pinot Noir, which is supposed to be fragrant and complex, but smells and tastes flat? When we try something we don’t like, we always fault the wine—and never think it might be the glass we’re using to blame.Can you relate? Then we have the perfect event for you.

On Thursday 2 July, Wamboin’s most picturesque winery, Contentious Character, will host a very special dinner masterclass—the Sip, Swirl and Learn Workshop + Dinner.

Hosted in partnership with one of the world’s leading wine glass designers, Riedel, this workshop will be all about getting the most enjoyment from your favourite drop, starting with the glass it’s poured into.

Regardless of your level of wine knowledge, this masterclass and workshop will guide you through how the shape of wineglass can affect the way you taste wine—from why champagne is best served in a tall, slim flute to how the bulbous shape of red wine glasses allows the drinker to fully appreciate each note.

At the end of the evening, you’ll walk away with an enlightened perspective on the sensory experience of wine—and having tasted some of Contentious Character’s most delectable drops along with a tasting platter, main course and dessert.

Not only that, but you’ll also take home four Riedel wine glasses at the end of the night—one each for Riesling, Oaked Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Shiraz—with the opportunity to purchase more glassware and wine on the evening, at significant discount. Shut up and take our money!

This workshop will be conducted in a small group with physical distancing in place.
