How about a pre-Christmas wine tasting on Sydney Harbour


Leading Clare Valley winery Taylors Wines wants to help wine lovers chill this summer while enjoying a glass or two of vino on a world-first floating cellar door on Sydney Harbour.

For one weekend only, the award-winning family-owned winery will host tasting experiences aboard a custom-built glass-lined tasting room set upon a floating barge in the middle of the harbour. 

Taylors aims to show the lucky few who get a spot how important temperature is to enjoying a wine at its best.

Taylors Cellar Door at Sea hopes to prove that popping your red wine in the fridge actually isn’t taboo, but necessary to achieving the perfect balance of flavours and aromas in your shiraz or pinots all year round.

“For years now we’ve hoped to shed a light on a misconception about red wines – that they need to be served at ‘room temperature’. This is an antiquated recommendation from way back when that actually has a negative impact on the enjoyment of our classic Aussie reds,” said third-generation managing director Mitchell Taylor.

“Taylors Cellar Door at Sea is heading out into the middle of Sydney Harbour to prove just how delicious chilled reds can be, especially during summer. 

"And by combining the perfect view in one of the world’s most notable destinations, we have all the elements to create the perfectly chilled wine experience.”

Guests will depart via exclusive water taxi from the Sydney Opera House jetty. They will arrive at Taylors' floating cellar door and enjoy a temperature-themed wine tasting using the newly-released Riedel Extreme range of glassware. 

Taylors Cellar Door at Sea sets sail Friday, December 7 to Sunday, December 9 with bookings for 60-minute group temperature tastings between 11am and 9pm daily.

Tickets start from $60 + booking fee per person, including return water taxi service, wine tasting and "curated" canapés.
