Drinks Lab presented by Riedel and Spiegelau

Enjoy a cellar door experience without even leaving the Show!

Some of the world’s best wine is made right here in Australia. Take the opportunity to sample wines from different regions, learning how to taste and identify varieties and how to best appreciate them.

Visitors tasted four wines over the course of 30 minutes and learnt how to pick a winning wine for their next dinner party invitation.

The Drinks Lab presented by Riedel and Spiegelau is included with a General Admission or VIP Lounge ticket. For a more exclusive experience, book your ticket to The Perfect Serve Cocktail Masterclass brought to you by Spiegelau  or the Riedel Glass Tasting Masterclasses.
