GRANGE SHIRAZ CHALLENGE

A celebration of the best Shiraz/Syrah from across Australia and beyong

A blind tasting in our ambient underground Cellars pits the controversial icon against 11 other premium Shiraz and Syrah from the New and Old World.


All wines are tasted in a blind format and participants are invited to vote for best in show on the night.
The tasting is followed by a light supper with a further 13th glass of another contender. To say the least, expect an unmatched Shiraz feast!


Can you pick the Grange amongst the likes of Wild Duck Creek, Peel Estate, Henschke, John Glaetzer, Pondalowie and more? 


Held one Friday per month throughout the year, there’s a date to suit everyone. This has to be one of Melbourne’s best wine nights!

Investment: $159 – includes supper


The Shiraz Challenge is also an ideal format for corporate events too - contact us today with your enquiry at events@armadalecellars.com.au

I highly recommend this event for the vinophiles out there. Lots of fun, very informative, and an excellent opportunity to sample established and overlooked wines of excellent quality.

Phil AND his lovely staff do a stunning job in ensuring that everyone attending their wine tasting forums has a jolly-good time. The knowledge and sharing thereof is to be commended AND Phil now has his very own vineyard (“Obscurite”) and last Friday I tasted the 2016 Heathcote Shiraz for the first time. It was one of the stand-out wines on the evening!!
