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!
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! Afterwards explore the grounds of the renowned d'Arenberg Winery, taking in the rolling hills of McLaren Vale.
