Give your taste buds a crash course in wine education at the Frankston and South Eastern Wine Show in The Briars Park, Mt Martha on August 31.

Swill, gargle and drink your way through some of best products by amateur wine makers in this event held by the Frankston Amateur Winemakers Guild. The guild usually meet once a month at the Briars historic property to taste the latest flavours members have conjured up and discuss wine-making techniques as well as holding classes during February.

Upon entry with a donation of $10, you receive a complimentary wine glass with which you will use as a vessel to carry wine from hand to mouth. With so many different varieties of wine, punters will be spoiled for choice sampling vino with ingredients like grapes, apples, stone-fruits, citrus, berries, vegetable, herbs and flowers in categories such as still, sparkling, fortified wines and liqueurs.

If you fancy making a day of it, why not bring your own picnic to have on the lawns or use one of the BBQ’s, maybe go for a stroll on the easy wildlife bushwalks or perhaps enjoy the 1840’s homestead with Napoleonic memorabilia. Either way this is a great day out for everyone, lets hope the weather behaves.
