Dark Side of Wine

August 2nd - August 11th 2024

The Winemakers of Rutherglen invite you to stray into the Dark Side of Wine from 2-11 August in Rutherglen, Northeast Victoria.

When the last of the sun’s rays smolder over the horizon and the winter moon emerges, the dark arts of Rutherglen will be revealed at the Dark Side of Wine.

This series of immersive experiences is a festival for the curious and the bold.

Try your hand at blending aged stocks and experiment with vibrant new vintages at a series of both day and nighttime events.

With Muscat and Durif varieties the intensely beating heart of the program, each experience will leave you enriched and enlivened. Enriched by the lore of Rutherglen and its wines and enlivened by the playful curiosity of its winemakers.

Each bottle holding its own secrets, the Dark Side of Wine series of Muscat events will unlock the dark mystery and beauty of this alluring wine, with deep and seductive Durif wines featured throughout the broader program.

Rutherglen is home to an incredibly diverse array of other red and white varieties, all of which will be expressed at Dark Side of Wine.

Tickets to events hosted between August 2nd - 11th are sold separately and range between complimentary - $200.

Will we be seeing you on the Dark Side of Wine this August?
