Urban Winery Project
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU MADE WINE?
IF YOU ANSWERED 'NEVER' THEN THIS IS FOR YOU.
Once a year during harvest we bring our entire winery, grapes, barrels, presses to a pop-up space in city and we get everyday people to take off their shoes and stomp grapes with us.
In 2017, for the first time, we're bringing it to Sydney, and to take the experience to the penthouse, we've invited Three Blue Ducks to collaborate with us and put together the feast to match.
EAT | DRINK | STOMP | MAKE WINE
HISTORY AND MORE.
Opening for the first time in 2012, #VUWP is the pioneer of Urban Wineries in Australia and one of only a few globally.
The aim is to created an immersive multi-faceted event focussed on wine, food, culture & education, operating as a working, interactive art installation.
It's wine made by the people // for the people. Courageous feet, loving hands + freed minds.
Everyone is invited to get involved in making wine as we de-stem the grapes with our hands, crush them with our feet, ferment with wild yeast, basket press & place in barrel for maturation.
Each process is demonstrated & explained in real time with real wine the result.
Wines made as part of the VUWP are matured in Oak by Vinteloper for the next 11 months before bottling. The release of these limited wines coincides with the pop-up VUWP in the year following, encouraging those who have been previously to re-visit & taste the products of their labour.
At the conclusion of each VUWP, any remaining wine is made available for sale to the general public & finds its way to some of the top restaurants in Australia & around the world.
