  • Interactive wine blending experience
  • Create your own unique wine
  • 8 course degustation with wine pairings at d'Arry's Verandah Restaurant

Explore winemaking techniques that make our flagship Shiraz 'The Dead Arm' one of Australia's most collected wines. Create your own unique blend while learning about McLaren Vale's vast geography. Then indulge in an 8 course degustation with carefully paired wine at d'Arry's Verandah Restaurant.

What's Included?

  • 90 minute wine blending masterclass
  • 750ml sample bottle of your favourite blend
  • 8 course degustation at d'Arry's Verandah Restaurant with Wine Pairings (Lobster, cheese and coffees included)

The Blending Bench is a hands on, interactive experience where you play winemaker. Using three barrel samples of our premium Shiraz you get to create a wine of your very own.

A palette of wine parcels, each with distinctive flavours and textures, are melded in search of balance, fullness and finesse. The physical work has been done – picking, crushing, fermenting, foot treading, basket pressing and barrel ageing, and you get to create a wine that is truly unique. You then bottle, name and label a 750ml sample to take home and show off to your friends.

Following your blending session, indulge your taste buds at an eight course degustation in d’Arry’s Verandah Restaurant, overlooking the rolling hills of McLaren Vale. This is a very favourite way of eating and a homage, if you like, to the old adage ‘variety is the spice of life’. The resultant combination of flavours and textures created between the food & wine pairings makes for an experience that will linger.
