Step into the winemakers laboratory and become 'winemaker' for a day. This interactive experience is fascinating and fun, as you combine distinctive flavours and textures to create your very own unique blend that you can take home with you! Afterwards, enjoy a premium wine tasting session too!
The Blending Bench is a hands on, interactive experience where you play winemaker, focusing on this winery's flagship Shiraz 'The Dead Arm'. A palette of Shiraz wine parcels, each with distinctive flavours and textures, are melded in search of balance, fullness and finesse. The physical work – picking, crushing, fermenting, foot treading, basket pressing and barrel ageing - is all done for you, 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! You'll then enjoy a premium wine tasting session too! Afterwards explore the grounds of the renowned d'Arenberg Winery, taking in the rolling hills of McLaren Vale.
