Pinot Palooza is returning to Brisbane in October, taking over the John Reid Pavilion at Brisbane Showgrounds for a day dedicated to 40 winemakers pouring more than 150 pinot noirs from Australia, New Zealand “and beyond”.

From the same people behind Game of Rhones and the Mould cheese festival, Pinot Palooza now visits 13 cities around the world. 2019 marks the third time the event has come to the Queensland capital.

It’s not just about wine, either – beer and a sizeable (yet to be finalised) food line-up will be in attendance to give your palate a break. Bar Vermouth is also returning in 2019, pouring your favourite aperitif either neat or as part of a spritz menu.

Tickets for Pinot Palooza are $65 and include take-home crystal Plumm Red B wine glass. A $95 VIP ticket gets you into an exclusive pre-event, a glass of bubbles on arrival and entry into a bunch of wine masterclasses.
