Wine & Meet: Networking Opportunity Over Quality Wine

Experience Wines of Character and Integrity in a group of entrepreneurs, business owners and wine fanatics... Welcome to the "not so cheesy" wine tasting & networking event on Wednesday July 3rd - 5:30pm at CoWork Me St Kilda. Bring your best wine friend and a clean palate for this wine tasting, served with some yummy cheese and great tunes. An opportunity to connect with other entrepreneurs, business owners and wine lovers over a glass or two. Tickets are $12 and includes a beautiful selection of wines, cheese, enjoyed together with other likeminded people. We have invited wine expert Darren Jahn for a special presentation of Robert Oatley’s award-winning wines from Margaret River & McLaren Vale. Robert Oatley Vineyards, founded by the late Robert (Bob) Oatley AO BEM in 2006, is a family owned winery led by his eldest son Sandy Oatley who, with his father, brother and sister, planted the first Oatley vineyards in the late 1960s. Focussing on wines from Margaret River and McLaren Vale, their home is in the stunning Margaret River, with a vineyard, cellar door and restaurant in Wilyabrup, in the heart of this great wine region. Consistently scoring over 90 points with the critics and having collected too many medals to detail, a number of the wines have been or are trophy winners; but, most importantly, they’ve resonated with the wine-loving public around Australia and the world.
