Get ready to experience a wine tasting like no other.
The team at The Lab has collaborated with McLaren Vale based winery Mr. Riggs for an event you do not want to miss.
For one day only, The Lab will turn into a shrine of wine, celebrating the rich history of Mr. Riggs and the expertise they hold in the industry of winemaking, hosted by Ben Riggs himself.
This is not your average cellar door wine tasting. Mr. Riggs is taking full advantage of the state-of-the-art facilities at The Lab to create an immersive masterclass that will leave attendees in awe.
Here, guests will be able to taste Mr. Riggs premium wines, all whilst being surrounded by stunning winery visuals. Once you enter the doors, you will forget the hustle and bustle of life outside and for 90 minutes, you will become very well acquainted with the heart and soul of Mr. Riggs wines in an experience never been done before.
Taking place on Saturday September 11, tickets for this exclusive event are very limited, and guess can select from two sessions:
2:00PM – 3:30PM
3:30PM – 5:00PM
Tickets are $30 per person and you must be 18+ to attend.
Mr. Riggs Wine Co. was founded in 2001 as a collaboration between Ben Riggs (with decades of vintages at McLaren Vale’s Wirra Wirra under his belt) and his mentor Tony Parkinson. The winery is positioned at the premium end of the ladder, using Ben’s extensive contacts with growers to pick exceptional fruit from the Adelaide Hills, Clare Valley, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale.
Mr. Riggs winemaking philosophy is to make unpretentious wines that express the essence of the vineyard and the region’s terroir in a style that Ben enjoys drinking; big, rich and complex, but also with finesse, texture and elegance, the latter not necessarily being traits Ben possesses.
The Lab, Adelaide’s new art and performance hub, has walls covered in LED screens that will take you out of Adelaide and into the music. Here, you can truly escape the outside world and be immersed in an unforgettable experience.
You can find The Lab 63 Light Square, Adelaide.
