Not so the Tasmanian Pinot Noir Showcase to be held at Wobbly Boot Vineyard in the Coal River Valley, north of Hobart, on Sunday, January 7.
This event will feature eight Tasmanian pinots from six boutique producers from around the state in a relaxed garden/vineyard setting.
Here's the blurb from Wobbly Boot vigneron Paul Williams: "Do you enjoy pinot noir? Join us for a wine and food experience to discover more about this grape variety.
"We'll begin in the vineyard to find out more how this variety is grown whilst sipping on a glass of Maclean Bay Pinot Rosé. Whilst sampling delicious Coal Valley foods, we will then taste pinots from six small boutique producers, each representing a different Tasmanian wine region, and hear the stories behind the wines."
Vineyards featured are: Emilia Wines, soon to re-brand as La Villa from Spreyton, Winter Brook (Tamar Valley), Maclean Bay (East Coast), Nandroya (Huon/Channel), Laurel Bank (Derwent Valley) and Wobbly Boot (Coal Valley).
Williams says there will also be a competition to guess a mystery wine ; and some low-key food and wine pairing.
The fun will run from 1-3.30pm and costs $68.50. Early bookings are advised.
