Hola, amigxs! Are you a bit of a devotee of the viticultural arts? Good news: the winemaking legends at Running With Bulls are hosting their Meet Your Maker series again for 2018. It’s a wine-tasting and degustation experience to challenge and school your taste buds, and if you’re lucky you could score a double pass to imbibe both vino and knowledge in equal parts.

Meet Your Maker evenings are running next month in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, and they’re all hosted by head winemaker Sam Wigan – who definitely knows his (red and white) stuff. The events offer Smith Journal readers a chance to sample Running With Bulls’ full collection of Spanish-inspired wines over an expertly paired degustation menu in some bloody nice restaurants across Australia. So bring an empty belly along with your curious mind.

Skilled taste buds could be an advantage too, as contests on the night challenge guests to identify the region, vintage and varietal of a ‘mystery’ drop – there could be magnums of wine and a few movie tickets for you if your nose sniffs right. Score!

To go in the draw to attend this excellently educational feast, enter your details using this online form, making sure to tell us what your favourite Mediterranean-inspired wine is and why in 25 words or less. We'll let you know the exact time and location by email if you win. Oh, and buena suerte!


Brisbane: Tuesday April 10th

Sydney: Thursday April 12th
