Now there’s even more on offer when you visit d'Arenberg! Thanks to their brand new Wine Immersion Centre, named The Stables in honour of the building’s former use, you can enjoy an in-depth, hands on wine experience.
There are multimedia displays on iPads and a HD television demonstrating the elements behind d'Arenberg that has made them one of the most successful family wineries in Australia. The Stables are also available for private tastings and corporate events and is home to the Blending Bench.
The Blending Bench is where the craft of winemaking becomes an art form. A palette of wine parcels, each with distinctive flavours and textures, are melded in search of balance, fullness, complexity, interest and finesse. They did the physical work – picking, crushing, fermenting, foot treading, basket pressing and barrel aging, but this blend is an expression of your palate.
The d'Arenberg team will guide you in the blending process to create your own personal d’Arenberg wine from three barrel samples of The Dead Arm Shiraz.
The Blending Bench is a hands on, interactive experience where you play winemaker, and then bottle a 750ml sample of your favourite wine blend to name (in a quirky d’Arenberg fashion) and take home to show off to your friends.
90 minute session – $60 per person, includes a bottle of your best wine.
Minimum four people, or join their Sunday Blending Bench 12 noon sessions, no minimum numbers required.
