Go behind the scenes at Voyager Estate to learn all aspects of winemaking, from vine to wine, on a new fun and interactive one-day wine experience.

Where better to learn about wine than at a Margaret River winery? Go behind the scenes at Voyager Estate to learn all aspects of winemaking, from vine to wine, on a new fun and interactive one-day wine experience. Voyager Estate is pleased to launch Margaret River’s only immersive full day wine education experience, Wine Essentials, as part of Aussie Wine Month. Start your day with a walk through the vineyards as you learn about the different characteristics of grape varietals, grape growing and seasonal influence. After morning tea (walking around vineyards is hungry work after all), you'll move into our private tasting room to learn more about tasting wine. The language of wine can seem quite complex. Sometimes it’s as if winemakers and sommeliers are talking another language. In this session you’ll learn some of the techniques of wine tasting in an interactive and fun way. We’ll help you discover your ideal wine, using a three step approach of appearance, aroma, and taste. You’ll gain an understanding of key wine descriptors and learn to identify the main characteristics of wine, especially in Margaret River varieties such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. It's then time to take your new tasting skills and apply them to food, with the basics of food and wine matching. It must be lunch time, so a table is reserved in our Restaurant for the 4-course wine-paired Margaret River Discovery menu lunch. This menu showcases the best of Margaret River produce, matched to the key regional varietals. No day is complete without a look at the winemaking, so after lunch, you're off to the winery with exclusive access to our technical staff, a barrel tasting and a look at Voyager Estate's winemaking techniques and philosophies. The day is limited to six participants and is available daily. Book now at https://voyagerestate.rezdy.com/123800/wine-essentials-day
