Tuesday 23 March @ 6pm 

The first in BRAG’s Art of Wine Series, this tasting celebrates women in wine and unexpected grape varieties in Australia. Louella Mathews, currently Head Sommelier at Bibo Wine Bar and previously at Rockpool 1989 and Rockpool Bar & Grill, will lead you through a tasting of six wines with intriguing stories to tell.
The Art of Wine series seeks to explore the themes of exhibitions with a thematic tasting of wine. This tasting ties into the theme of women with the exhibition Rebecca Wilson: Myth-making, Heroes and Villains - the subject of the woman Kate Kelly (Ned Kelly's little sister) by a woman artist, plus Just Not Australian which explores Australia's national identity.
The tasting will include six different wines, plus light refreshments (please indicate any dietary requirements upon booking).
This event is strictly 18+
$25 BRAGS members, $30 non-members (plus booking fee)
