The Barolo & Barbaresco Panel | Thursday 4th July | $145 | 6:30pm
In years to come, people are going to ask in hushed whispers: “Where were you when Mercato showcased the 2015 release of cru Barolo & Barbaresco?” Hopefully you’ll be able to reply: “I was there!”.

Like the old tradesman pointing out yet another house he worked on in his earlier years to his eye-rolling kids, this is one event that you just won't be able to help but talk about in the future. Joining the Mercato Vino team, will be an open discussion Q&A panel of experts, featuring industry heavyweight David Ridge. Guests will get the chance to taste the difference between sub-regions, guided by his years of experience and phenomenal palate.

Christian Canala and Chris Newton-Smith from Vinify Wine Co will discuss living, breathing and working with Italian wine every day, talk consumer trends, producer philosophy, whilst explaining how the traditional vs. modern debate continues to be a hot topic at the dinner table. Current Young Gun of Wine top 50 finalist Tarrant Hansen, owner and winemaker of Spider Bill Wines will take you through the inner nuances of making Nebbiolo, drawing on from his wine making experiences in Piemonte and Australia, explaining what makes this varietal so special for not just the consumer, but for the producer.

With at least a dozen wines on tasting, together with a menu curated by our very own Bar Mercato head chef Nick, this promises to be a centrepiece of the wine industry calendar. This is more than a wine night; this is the birth of the Mercato Vino Club.
