Never been to a tasting? Not sure what to expect?
Well the first thing is to be assured that all Glengarry tastings and events are run in a non-intimidating way. Our aim to ensure that everyone enjoys themselves, learns about wine, and feels comfortable no matter what their previous tasting experiences are. There’s no time like the present to get out to a tasting, either by yourself or with family and friends.
We are delighted to have our events back up and running in person. Alongside this we are continuing to run our events via Zoom. Zoom tastings have been great through the last few years and have given us the ability to connect with some super impressive hosts. For virtual tastings via Zoom your tasting samples are sent to you in small bottles ahead of time so you can taste along.
Here’s a snapshot of what’s coming up. For the full schedule jump online and book today.

These wines are exceptional and recognised and sought after by collectors around the world.

FINE WINE TASTING | THE FINE WINES OF ITALY
Navigating the world of Italian wine can at first glance seem a daunting task, however the exploration of Italian wine will yield you nothing but delight. As well as the traditional winemaking in Italy we are also blessed with visionaries that have against all odds planted non-native grapes such as Bordeaux varieties, which now have their own place in Fine Wine World and are known as Super Tuscans.
Our very own General Manager Liz Wheadon, together with our Victoria Park site Manager Zane Winskill, are going to lead us through the very best that each region has to offer. We will be tasting Antinori Solaia 2018, Bibi Graetz Testamatta 2019, Biondi Santi Brunello DOCG Reserva 2013, Bruno Giacosa Barbarsco Rabaja DOCG 2014, Ornellaia Masseto 2018, Caiarossa Toscana 2018, Di Gresy Barbaresco DOCG Camp Gros Riserva 2015, Gagliardo Barolo Lazzarito DOCG 2015.
To purchase all these wines would be circa $4.5k. This is a rare opportunity to try some of the very finest fine wines in the world.

EXPLORING COGNAC | GLENGARRY SPIRITS
Cognac, much like Champagne, is a region that is dominated by its big names, but also where smaller, family owned producers continue to thrive alongside them. From these less well known houses come not just some of the best value brandy on the market, but some of the finest examples available anywhere.
For this tasting we are proud to present a range of Cognacs that perfectly encapsulate that. Tesseron, founded in 1905 by Abel Tesseron and renowned for their collections of aged eaux-de-vie, and Lheraud, the eponymous family who have lived in the region since 1680 and produced their first Cognac in 1802, will be the stars of the evening. We will taste through several Cognacs from both houses, from their more entry level offerings, through to some rare and very old blends.
