The definitive guide to Australian Wines
Win a wine-tasting weekend in Sydney for you and your partner valued at more than $800, including VIP passes to the city's newest wine festival and an overnight stay at the luxurious Pier One Sydney Harbour hotel.
The inaugural Wine Heroes weekend will see more than 60 Australian winemakers recreate the cellar door experience at Barangaroo from 27-29 October. Boutique wine producers such as Alex Retief, Comyns & Co and Peterson House will be among those offering tastings, together with regional food champions such as oyster farmer James Woods and the cheese-loving team from the Two Fat Blokes Gourmet Kitchen at De Iuliis Wines.
The three-day program features ticketed masterclasses designed to take your palate and food-pairing skills to the next level, headlined by television chef Karen Martini and wine writers Jeremy Oliver and Tyson Stelzer.
Our lucky winner will receive two passes for the Sunday, including access to the Riedel VIP lounge (where you can unwind with champagne and freshly shucked oysters), a Wine Heroes goodie bag worth more than $200, and overnight studio accommodation at Pier One Sydney Harbour the night prior.
