Virtual vertical tasting with Meg Brodtmann, MW

August 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

If you tasted a wine, would you know which flavours came from the environment, weather, winemaking or age? Tasting a “vertical” is the best way to learn just that, and we’ve enlisted the best teacher to show you how.

We’ve dug into our museum wines for 3 top vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon to taste and compare. Guiding you through this tasting will be one and only Meg Brodtmann, Master of Wine. Not only does Meg have the highest wine designation any person can earn, but also decades of experience wine making and educating around the world; and far from what you might expect… she’s one of the most down-to-earth people we know.

Meg will guide you through a tasting of the 2015, 2016 and 2017 vintages of Rob Dolan White Label Cabernet Sauvignon. You’ll learn how vintage conditions impacted each wine, which flavours are as a result of age, how to pair cabernet with food, and how to tell which wines are worth cellaring. She can also answer any other burning questions you have about wine generally, or her experience undertaking what might be the world’s hardest exam!

For $99 you’ll receive:

  • Three vintages of Rob Dolan White Label Cabernet Sauvignon, worth $135
  • Zoom entry for interactive tasting with Meg
  • Free Shipping* or pick up from Cellar Door

Dust off your jeans and brush your hair, we’re back!

That’s right. You’re going to be sitting on our lawn, overlooking the vineyard with a glass of wine in hand before you know it.

Before you rush on down, here’s what you need to know:

🗓 We open for service on the 2nd November.
💻 We’ve noticed people seem kind of excited to leave their houses, funny that. So we expect to be busy. With limited spaces available, we highly recommend booking a table to avoid disappointment. (Link in bio)
🍷 Booking a table is $5 per person. This will also provide your GoVino ‘glass’ for the session, which will be yours to keep. You’ll be camping classy from now on.
🧀 Wine will be available by the bottle, and you’ll have something to eat while you’re here. Don’t worry, we’ve got the goods: Cheese. All the cheese.
🥂If you’re so excited to be out of the house that you can’t decide which wine to drink, we can help. Our dedicated Wine Specialists will be doing table-side tastings for $10.
🥐 Brunch is back! Remember brunch? Mimosas and pastries are on the menu for weekends so you can start the day right.
🐶 We get it, your dogs have become needy (ours too!) Don’t worry, they’re welcome here. Just keep them on a lead on pick up after them.
✔️Lastly, rest assured we’ve got all bases covered when it comes to hygiene and safety. So you can relax and focus on other important things (like red or white).

Next time you’re drinking our White Label Pinot Noir or Chardonnay, you’ll know it came from this beautiful vineyard. Willowlake is known as one of the highest quality Yarra Valley vineyards, pretty easy on the eyes too 😍

Have you tasted our Black Label Pinot Noir? Specifically designed for food pairing, it's a fuller style of pinot, and perfect with medium meats like duck or pork. Yum!

Any Pinot Gris fans? 🙋🙋‍♀️
Our Pinot Gris spends time with skins to develop its signature blush colour. With texture and the fresh flavour of watermelon, we know what we’ll be drinking heading into summer!
