Event Details

The Healesville wine producer is taking its cellar door online

You might not be able to physically visit a cellar door at the moment, but there’s no reason you can’t recreate that experience at home.

Yarra Valley winemakers Innocent Bystander is moving its usual wine tastings into cyberspace, offering weekly wine tasting sessions via Facebook. The online weekly wine tastings run every Friday starting March 27 and are hosted by Innocent Bystander sommelier Margaret.

Every Friday night for six weeks, the tasting sessions will be streamed live on Facebook as Margaret takes you through specific varietals, gives tastings notes and suggests food pairings. The wine tasting schedule is below.

Fri, Mar 27: Perusing Pinot Noir
Fri, Apr 3: The Greatness of Pinot Gris
Fri, Apr 10: Talking Tempranillo
Fri, Apr 17: Sipping Syrah
Fri, Apr 24: Gabbin ‘bout Gamay
Fri, May 1: Chatting Chardonnay

If you really want to go the whole hog and get involved (and by all means do) you can preorder the wines to enjoy alongside your virtual tastings. Innocent Bystander has an online wine store that is currently offering free shipping plus 20 per cent off.
