Winemaker for a Weekend

Get hands on and immerse yourself in the world of wine

Food and wine lovers will delight in Queensland College of Wine Tourism’s “Winemaker for a Weekend” Program, where two glorious days are spent in Qld’s premier wine region experiencing the wine making process, hands-on, interspersed with informative master classes and a sensational food and wine experience.

From hand picking the grapes, to the crushing and pressing process, preparation, fermentation and inoculation of the juice, participants discover so much more about ‘the finer things in life’ as they participate in the production of their very own wine.

With many indulgences in between, including delightful lunches and an incredible banquet style evening meal with matching wines, guests are assured of a wonderful weekend to remember. As a recent participant of the Winemaker for a Weekend commented, “I just loved it and without exaggeration, it is one of the best weekends of my life”.

As the bottling and labeling process awaits later in the season, guests are invited to return for an additional weekend to take part in this exciting finale, be part of an expert food and wine matching masterclass as well as a professional wine masterclass, and take home a half case of their very own wine, complete with customised label!

For a weekend with a difference, great company, genuine hospitality and sheer enthusiasm for food and wine, you really must experience the Queensland College of Wine Tourism’s “Winemaker for a Weekend” program.

As there are limited numbers of weekends during vintage, early bookings are advised. For all enquiries, please contact Chrissy on 07 4685 5050 or email Chrissy Mattiazzi, College Manager www.varias.com.au.
