Wine Club Barrel Blending 2019

Share this with your friends:

Were hosting our 6th Annual Wine Club Barrel Blending on 9th March from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Gibbston Valley Winery, where you can experience the thrill of creating your own perfect blend of Pinot Noir.

This is an easy to digest winemaking experience that has been designed to be educational and informative, but also a lot of fun. Rub shoulders with the winemaking team, pick their brains and meet fellow Wine Club members, all in one day.

Tasting & Blending

Join our winemakers for a barrel/tank tasting of multiple Pinot Noirs at separate stations. Afterwards, collaborate with other members and our winemakers on which wines should be blended to create a custom 2018 Members Reserve.

Once the special blend is determined, a full barrique will be filled and placed in the wine cave to age. After a few months in barrel, the wine will be bottled in personalised 1.5L magnums. 

Following the blending, guests will enjoy a gourmet banquet lunch at the winery. Those who participate will have the opportunity to own their own blend offered at a very special price on the day.


Tickets are $49 per person, max 2 tickets per member and include a gourmet banquet lunch. To purchase tickets click the Book Now link above. For help with your booking please call +64 (0) 3 442 6910 or email wineclub@gibbstonvalley.com .
