Love wine but always eager to learn more?
Always dreamed of making your own wine?
Keen to learn directly from a winemaker?
Here’s one to tick off the bucket list! Take your interest in wine to the next level with a year-long, fully immersive experience.
Through Austin’s new Rent a Vine program, you can create your very own personalised vintage of wine – learning to pick, process, blend, bottle and brand.
Launching in 2020, Austin’s will open the winery gates for this exclusive, hands-on winemaking experience. Over the course of the year, customers will enjoy a series of winemaking events, behind-the-scenes access to the winery and hands-on learning experience with our winemakers. A truly unique gift for yourself, the wine lover in your life, or for that person who has everything…
A region-first, this Rent a Vine program will provide you with exclusive access to winemakers and behind the scenes access to our winery. You will also walk away with your very own custom blend of pinot noir from our 2020 vintage including custom-branded labels. This inaugural concept provides us with an opportunity to share our passion for growing fruit, making wine and sharing a good conversation with you.
Get your hands dirty and discover the ins and outs of a working winery, from vineyard to glass. These five, fully immersive workshops are designed for customers to discover the integral steps to producing your own wine, without the physical demand.
- Workshop 1: Introduction and Pinot Noir Tasting
- Workshop 2: Picking and Crushing
- Workshop 3: Vineyard Pruning
