Out of Step Tasting
Wednesday the 3rd of February at East End Cellars, 5pm-7pm - FREE
From old school Yarra to a very much new producer from the region the very next night we have one of the winemakers from Out of Step wines in the shop. The Out of Step label started in 2012 and over the past few years we've been very impressed by their wines, including varieties that one wouldn't normally associate with the Yarra such as Nebbiolo and Grenache, plus they make a really great Savvy too! They have a great range of small batch wines, made to reflect their site and the variety but most importantly, be extremely delicious.
Please join us on Wednesday the 3rd anytime between 5 and 7pm to have taste, with wines available at special prices to purchase on the night.
