Victoria’s famed Yarra Valley are rounding up their many award-winning wineries for a bit of an interactive virtual experience that should keep enthusiasts satisfied while on lockdown. 29 of the regions’ best producers have come together from this, a Virtual Cellar Door platform which is taking place every Thursday from now.
The concept is simple. You visit one of the Yarra’s cellar doors through Instagram video and then join a winemaker for a live stream chat over a glass of wine. Find out what makes them tick, ask questions, and be given the option to purchase from two different mixed six-packes on the Wine Yarra Valley website to be shipped within Australia for free.
Just tune into @WineYarraValley at 5pm every Thursday to start the tour, during which you can go online to order one of the curated six-packs or a “Pick Your Own Pack” which gives you the choice from a selection of over 40 different Yarra Valley wines.
“This is a great opportunity for wine-lovers to still be able to indulge in their Yarra Valley winery visit from the comfort of their couch,” said Yarra Yering Winemaker Sarah Crowe.
