The first ever Pinot Picnic is a celebration of Western Australia’s Southern Forests & Valleys’ best produce and pinot wine varieties, running from 22 to 25 April with pop-up events throughout Manjimup and Pemberton.
For those who can’t travel to the region in person, a virtual live-streamed wine tasting event will bring Pinot Picnic into homes around Singapore on Friday 23 April at 7.30 pm.
The PINOT PILGRIMAGE event will take place in the heart of Karri Tree country and the tasting panel will feature wine aficionados and winemakers taking to the stage to share their knowledge about the Southern Forests premium pinot varieties; from pinot sparkling through to pinot rosé and noir.
The panel of experts features wine writer Erin Larkin (contributor to The Wine Companion magazine, Gourmet Traveller Wine, a Pro Member of Tastingbook.com and others), alongside Rob Geddes MW. Rob is a Master of Wine, immersed in every aspect of the wine industry for more than 30 years as an author, consultant, judge and educator. Rob is the author of the longest running national wine guide Australian Wine Vintages (popularly known as the Gold Book), now in its 36th edition. Rounding off the panel are local winemakers Dan Pannell from Picardy Wines, and long-time pinot lover Liam Carmody from Lonely Shore.
Virtual guests in Singapore can pre-order a Pinot Picnic hamper to play along with the tasting in the comfort of their home. Pinot Picnic hamper offerings include a trio or four pack of Southern Forests wine and Plumm glassware, as well as small and large hampers with a paired gourmet spread supplied by Lush Platters. Hampers are available through the Pinot Picnic website www.pinotpicnic.com/picnichampers and will be delivered to your door.
The inaugural 2021 Pinot Picnic is a partnership with Wine Australia, Wines of WA, Australia South West, Southern Forests Wine Region, Southern Forests Food Council, Department of Primary Industries & Regional Development, Southern Forests & Valleys Tourism, South West Development Commission, RAC Western Australia, Shire of Manjimup and Roolife Group.
