Event Description

Celebrity owned wines are not new. Film maker Francis Ford Coppola has a long history of winemaking, Jurassic Park star Sam Neill is owner of the highly regarded Two Paddocks winery and cricket legend Sir Ian Botham is very much involved with his own range of wines.

Celebrity endorsed wines come with a price premium, so are they worth the extra money? Passion projects from long time wine enthusiasts or self-serving marketing stunts?

Spend an evening exploring the world of "celebrity wines". We will taste 6 different celebrity wines to decide if they are gimmicky or great. The wines will be tasted blind to avoid any bias and to see if you can guess the famous face behind the label? 

Join us to decide which wines will make your A list.
