Winter Reds

We’re excited to announce that we’re taking part in Winter Reds 2023.

Admission for the weekend is $15 and includes a glass of Nepenthe Altitude wine and a take home Winter Reds glass. You can then take this glass around to all the other participating wineries in the region. We are also hosting three different masterclasses across the weekend, which will be lead by our winemaker, James Evers.



In our Winter Reds Masterclasses, James will take you through a tasting of five expertly chosen wines, each paired with a complementing cheese.

Each masterclass has a slightly different spin on what you’ll learn, from a French and Napa Vally comparison in our Pinot Noir Masterclass, to reviewing Shiraz through the ages, including some Museum vintages in our Shiraz Masterclass - you certainly leave having had a unique experience.
