A pristine pink sunset set the perfect backdrop for Tuesday night's 'Walk Talk and Taste' at Cargo Road Winery.
Winemaker James Sweetapple talked curious wine lovers through the steps it takes to get a grape from the vine and into the bottle.
Understanding the process gives wine drinkers' a whole new appreciation of their drop, according to Mr Sweetapple.
"People love it, it's very 'hands on'," he said.
"They are fascinated, it's about experimental tourism."
The event allowed guests to ramble around the scenic vineyard and learn all about grape production in a cool climate, identify different variety and stages, and gain a better understanding of taste.
"They got to taste the grapes on the vine and then the same wine in a bottle," Mr Sweetapple said.
"Most cant' believe vine grapes taste so good."
Mr Sweetapple has been running the talks for 13 years and said his guests always have an enjoyable evening and leave with a better understanding and new appreciation of wine.
Mr Sweetapple can take up to 600 guests on his 'Walk Talk and Taste' tours.
