MIFF Festival Lounge - Blackhearts & Sparrows Presents WINE DOWN - a Wine Tasting Event and 'Not Serious Wine Chats'

(MIFF 2017, MIFF Festival Lounge)

Melbourne’s most loved wine store, Blackhearts & Sparrows, will once again flex their viticultural muscles at MIFF with Wine Down, a Wine Tasting Event including a 'Not Serious Wine Chat'.

Due to the popularity of the 2016 sold-out event, this time wine lovers can choose from two sessions, either 12.30pm–2.30pm or 3.30pm–5.30pm (Sold Out). In between the two sessions, Blackhearts & Sparrows will present a special edition of 'Not Serious Wine Chats' discussing 'The Price of Plonk - Why Does it Cost What it Does?'

'Like most things, wine costs money to make. But what's the deal with pricing wine, and why is it so different depending on where you buy it? Does price reflect quality? How much should quality cost, and who decides? Where's your money going, and where's the value?' The experts chatting about this topic include prominent Spanish wine importer Scott Wasley; Len Evans Dux; Blackhearts & Sparrows' own Adam Cotterell; and Valentine Wines' Dominic Valentine and Bar Owner Laura Twomey.

The Not Serious Wine Chats discussion is free, but to participate in the Wine Tasting, you will need to purchase a ticket that includes a Riedel Ouverture Wine Glass (valued at $39.99 a pair), which is yours to keep.
