How to meet your maker. Join d'Arenberg for an online wine tasting.

Chester Osborn, the flamboyant d'Arenberg winemaker, is one of those in the wine industry who has taken to online tastings with gusto.


Osborn will launch the 2014 vintage d'Arenberg Dead Arm Shiraz on Thursday, June 29, via Facebook. 

Since being first released in 1993, The Dead Arm Shiraz has enjoyed international success and is now recognised as d'Arenberg’s flagship - an impressive accolade in a portfolio of over 70 wines. 

“I’ve travelled all over the world, meeting people, tasting, and sharing the stories behind the quirky names of our wines,” said Osborn. “But the world is a big place, and I can’t have a drink with everyone!" 

Instead, he is offering "a chance to hear about the art of winemaking, the d'Arenberg way, from the comfort of your own home, hopefully with a glass of wine in hand.” 

Broadcasting live from the d'Arenberg Facebook page at 7pm ACST on June 29, the man with Australia's wildest collection of shirts will offer insight into d'Arenberg’s winemaking techniques and talk about the 2014 Icon wines. 

Potential viewers are encouraged to purchase a triple pack of the 2014 Icons as a special pre-release offer and taste along at home, sharing their experience online using the hashtag #mytasting

The triple pack can be purchased for $195 online at www.darenberg.com.au/mytasting. The packs include one bottle of each Icon wine, The Ironstone Pressings GSM, The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon and The Dead Arm Shiraz in a gift box.
