Urban Winery Sydney: Wine Blending Session

Urban Winery Sydney

Select Option


Learn what goes into making the perfect glass of incredibly well-balanced red wine.

Urban Winery Sydney’s blending sessions are one of the more entertaining and informative classes. Separated into groups, sit down with our head winemaker Alex Retief and be taken through six single variety red wines, exploring the aroma, structure and palate-feel of each.

Each group is then given measuring cylinders and half an hour to come up with their favourite blend, for example, mixing 50% shiraz, 30% merlot, 10% petit verdot and 10% tempranillo. These ‘favourite blends’ are then collated and poured to the groups, so they can be blind-tasted and judged by everyone involved – with an ultimate winner appointed on the day.

Our guests will sit amongst the wine barrels in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, however feel as though they have been transported to the vineyards of regional NSW. The experience will round out with a sample from a few select bottles paired with a cheese and charcuterie platter.
