A group of like minded and like (under)funded artisan winemakers who are working together to bring you unique, edgy and fun wine events around Australia.
Some of you will remember the old Boire Restaurant site at 92 Smith St Collingwood.
Before this currently empty restaurant is transformed into its next itteration, the VINsurgents are taking it over for a one night; where you bring the food and we serve the wine.
We call it; #VINrevBYO
Take one empty restaurant, add wine, music and your very own team of line-caught, locally-sourced, free range winemaker sommeliers and you have the VINsurgents Reverse BYO.
The concept is simple & Sunday-friendly:
We have selected three outstanding restaurants within 100m of the venue that will each offer first rate take-out food. Food comes with you or to you from one of these three high performing kitchens – you just come to us, have a glass and a seat, and let us take the stress out of take out dining for you.
Our side of the bargain is a selection of lip-smacking small-producer wine which we will expertly tailor to your tastes and your take-out. You can do burger brackets, a Thai banquet menu (Easy Tiger!) or a pizza vertical – ALL with matched wines.
The three locally sourced take-out venues are:
Huxtaburger – one of Melbourne’s most esteemed burger-focused restaurants
Easy Tiger – one of our favourite fired up share cuisine mash up joints
Ladro – Gertrude Street’s best high-functioning pizza maker
WHEN: For one night only, Sunday 23rd June from 4pm
WHERE: 92 Smith St, Collingwood (formerly Boire)
