After a two-year hiatus the Taste the Awards: Halliday Sip Series is back. As a follow-up to the Halliday Wine Companion Awards, you’ll be able to see and sip the best Australian wines over one pleasant evening. On top of the wine tastings, there will be tasty canapes, and a special gift bag to take home. The Halliday Sip Series will take place on Thursday August 4, at Sophia inside Prahran Arcade.
Taste the Awards 2023: Halliday Sip Series
For over 30 years, Halliday Wine Companion has provided a comprehensive collection of tasting notes and wine reviews. At the highly-anticipated awards ceremony, winners are selected from a pool of thousands, all featured in the annual Halliday Wine Companion guide. The winners are selected from a range of criteria, and offer a representation of the country’s greatest in the wine industry.
In the Halliday Sip Series, you’ll go on a magnificently boozy journey across Australia, and sip some of these award-winning wines. Chat to some of the winning winemakers and wineries, and learn more about your favourite drops.
Then, treat yourself to some gourmet canapes, bowls and desserts, including smoked salmon rillettes, pan-fried saffron gnocchi, petit passionfruit tartlet and more.
During the event, guests will have a chance to sign-up and try exclusive masterclasses from some of the greatest wineries in the evening. Meanwhile, in Dan Murphy’s Cellar, winemakers will take you through their creations, their history and their process for an insight into their craft.
At the end of the event, take home a special gift bag, filled with the newly released 2023 Halliday Wine Companion, and goodies from sponsors like CAPI, Different Drop and RIEDEL.
This event will take place in Sophia, at the heritage-listed Prahran Arcade building, and will run from 6:30pm to 9:30pm. Members will receive early access from 6pm.
