CELEBRATE THE HOLY UNION OF WINE ...AND YOU
This season, you are invited to join Handpicked Wines for the wine tasting of the year. Celebrate spring with Melbourne’s first ‘wine wedding’ - a feast of fine wine tastings, toasties, music and fun all atop the brand new Notel rooftop space in Melbourne CBD - in vintage airstreams. This event sold out in Sydney in 2015 and is travelling to Melbourne for the first time ever. Don't miss out!
What is a wine wedding?
We see wine as a religious experience. A wine wedding is just like a regular wedding without all the boring bits – no long speeches, weird aunts or expensive gifts required. Just good fashion, fine wine, confetti, high quality snacks and music in an amazing location.
But why a wine wedding?
We are tired of boring wine tastings! Our aim is to share an appreciation of fine wine while still having fun. Plus… this will be your opportunity to wear that bridesmaids dress you were coerced into buying for $400 which ended up straight on gumtree with ‘only worn once’ as the tag line. You know what I’m talking about…
What is included in the ticket price?
- 6 unique wine tasting spaces in 6 airstream caravans
- A range of premium spring and summer wines from the finest cool climate regions of Australia and New Zealand, all from award-winning Handpicked Wines. The star attractions will be Handpicked's Rosé, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
- An amazing cheese toastie from Blakesfeast
- Wedding favour treats
- Music and a great crowd
Don't forget your toothbrush! One lucky wedding guest won't be going home after winning a night's accommodation in the honeymoon suite. The prize includes a next-day kit from Gorman, free minibar and private outdoor deck and spa.
What should I wear?
We ran this event in Sydney last year and we had everything from runway fashion to 80’s bridesmaid dresses and even one zombie bride. Whatever your style, prepare to frock up. Think Ru Paul level realness.
What if it rains?
You know how weddings work...rain, hail or shine! We will do our best to provide cover if it rains, however on the off chance the weather gods aren’t kind, bring your boots and we’ll provide wine and plenty of ponchos.
Early bird tickets are $35 + booking fee (includes all wine plus a toastie and treats - and maybe one night's accommodation if it's your lucky day)
