d'Arenberg McLaren Vale: Make Your Own Wine

    What to Expect
    d'Arenberg is the only winery in Australia to basket press both white wines as well as reds, making for a labor intensive process, but the quality of the results makes this worthwhile as the action is controlled and extremely gentle.

    This hands on, interactive experience allows you an experience like no other, the chance to play winemaker. A palette of wine parcels, each with distinctive flavors and textures, are melded in search of balance, fullness and finesse.

    The physical work has been done for you – the picking, crushing, fermenting, foot treading, basket pressing and barrel ageing, and you get to create a wine that is truly unique.

    You then bottle a 750ml sample to take home and show off to your friends.

    Eight of us did The Blending Bench Experience recently, our host was Tanya, who was fantastic, so knowledgeable and friendly. We all had a great time and with Tanya’s help managed to blend a bottle of red each to take home. Would highly recommend this experience!!
