There’s something about smaller wineries… they’re transparent, unassuming and highly personal. Sometimes you’re lucky enough to meet the winemaker behind the drop but it’s not often the winemaker, vigneron, production staff and sales are one in the same (and at your disposal!)
Meet Vinny Webb of Baarmutha Wines, the one man band behind his humble, rustic winery in the hills of historic Beechworth. Vinny is opening the doors for an intimate Chardonnay or Shiraz tasting experience, starting when he picks you up from your accommodation.
By the time you arrive at Baarmutha, you’ll know everything you need to know about Beechworth (Vinny is a self-confessed history buff) and he’ll know everything he needs to about your taste in wine. From here, you’ll move between the cellar door and the underground, clay roof cellar, ‘pulling bungs out’ and experiencing the surprising differences between wines from 2018 to 2020. Then, it’s onto a regional tasting platter and a bottle of your choosing to enjoy onsite or take with you. The perfect pre-dinner activity!
