Wine, glorious wine. We treat ourselves to a glass after a tough week (day) at work, we indulge in its deliciousness with a meal and we’re definitely not afraid to pop open a bottle with our mates on a Sunday arvo. What’s better than heading to your fave destination for a glass or two with the gang? Try heading out to 11 different bars instead and being spoilt for choice.
Everyone’s favourite booze-filled journey, the classic pub crawl, is getting a grape new transformation that you won’t want to miss out on. Returning to Brisbane in September is the ultimate bar-hopping experience every vino enthusiast needs in their life, The Urban Wine Walk. An epic, self-guided wine tasting experience, the walk allows participants to meander their way through Fortitude Valley's bustling bar and restaurant scene while sipping on a lip-smacking selection of wines along the way.
This is no ordinary wine tasting event—Urban Wine Walk collaborates with local venues to create the ultimate pop-up cellar door tasting experience, giving you a chance to get out and explore some of Brisbane’s most established restaurants and wineries. From 12pm until 4pm on Saturday 10 September, wander your way through the Valley into venues including Summa House, Gerard's Bar, Bisou Bisou and The Prince Consort, just to name a few (there's eleven all up).
And of course, the stars of the show—the wineries. You’ll be in good hands with the best of the best wineries, including Witches Falls Wines, Gerler Wines, La Petite Mort, Silent Noise and a heap more from Queensland, WA and NSW and South Australia.
Tickets are $80 including over 30 tastings at the venues involved, a $10 voucher to spend on snacks and a $25 voucher for any event day wine orders. Trust us, you won’t want to miss out on getting the gang together for an afternoon of bliss and amazing hospitality.
