Pinot Palooza is coming back to the east coast, and it’s returning to its traditional spring-time slot. This sweet celebration of all things pinot came back to Melbourne in May last year, after a two and a half year postponement due to the pandemic. And now, this sensational event has confirmed dates in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane for October this year, marking a return to pre-pandemic normalcy. Mark your calendars, because tickets go on sale in May, and you don’t want to miss it.
Past years have seen more than 200 Australian and New Zealand wine producers showcasing their pinots. There have also been producers from further afield, like Argentina and France. The pinot party last year had over 150 different wines to try. As you sip your way through the festival, have a chat with the winemakers and learn more about the production process.
Outside of the wine, there’s usually food stalls to discover, and other drinks like cider, beer and spirits.
Dates around Australia:
- Perth – August 25-27 (in collaboration with Mould festival)
- Sydney – October 6-7
- Brisbane – October 13-14
- Melbourne – October 27-28
