The highly anticipated annual Grampians Winemakers Reserve Shiraz Barrique Auction
Always a hit with connoisseurs and a number of winning bidders lucky enough to take home a rare ‘taste of the Grampians.’
A major fundraiser for the Grampians Winemakers, the 2018 vintage Barrique Auction will be held at 2:15pm on the Saturday in the Festival Masterclass marquee, so be sure to get yourself there to bid big and bold. Tastings will occur prior to the auction.
This year the Barrique will be a blend of eight wineries premium Shiraz, bottled as a unique offering from 2018. This release will be the winemakers 28th since 1991, so the legend continues.
