A couple of weeks ago, the winemaking guns at Running With Bulls threw a party for a few lucky Smith readers. Held across two nights at Farajah in Adelaide and The Auburn Hotel in Melbourne, Meet Your Maker brimmed with Mediterranean-inspired food and wine – and some pretty tip-top company, too. Head winemaker Sam Wigan was there to guide everyone through the drinks list, and explain a bit of the strange alchemy that went into each bottle.
It wasn’t all polite smiles and chitchat; once everybody’s taste buds had limbered up, they were challenged to identify the region, vintage and variety of a ‘mystery’ wine. (Trust us, it was hard.) The prize was a trip to the Running With Bulls vineyard in the Barossa Valley, where Sam will teach the winners how to blend their very own wine like a pro. Sadly that blend won’t be available for sale, but for their full range of wines, head to RunningWithBulls.com.au.
