SUNDAY JULY 25 | 12pm till 5pm


Dear All Pinot Lovers, 

It is with a feeling of sadness, and inevitability, that we must cancel Pinot Palooza “UnPugged Geelong” scheduled for this Sunday at The Timber Yard

The health and safety of everyone is always our top priority and it is obviously not the time to come together and celebrate the grape variety (and region) we love. 

After consideration, we won’t be rescheduling this event for it is not only difficult to know when that would be possible, or permitted, but even with our most optimistic hats on, we believe it would then be too close to the main Pinot Palooza event on October 8 & 9. 

All tickets will be refunded for this event. 

(Though we ask to please be patient as we process them over the coming days)

To say we’re disappointed is an understatement yet, as we’ve said before, we’d rather run a safe event than not. 

We’re a small team who genuinely cares about what we do and the connections you make with the amazing makers, growers, farmers and families we help represent. 

Your support for them, and us, means the world and we’re so grateful for it all. 

Thank you. 

For now, please all stay safe, follow the health advice, and stay positive. 

Instead of ‘we got this’, let’s just ‘do this’.

Much love (and safely distanced virtual hugs!),
Dan, Rachel & Dave


Whilst we had to put the main stage festival on hold last year, we’re looking forward to celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the event. Epic.

To celebrate this milestone, we’re going to run a number of smaller “UnPlugged” events where we get to focus on the makers and growers of a specific region.

Pinot Palooza “UnPLUGGED” is all about taking a slower, more chilled approach to wine.
Sunday Session numbers will be restricted to not only adhere to social distancing and other covid requirements, but again, make it more chill.
Not quite the manic enthusiasm of the main event but you’ll taste with a skip in your step for sure!

To kick off, we’re running a series of tasting focusing on THE PINOT COAST which includes Geelong, Mornington Peninsula and Gippsland. Whilst the below are only Melbourne gigs thus far (we’re Melbourne based after all), expect to see more of these in other cities and regions that we’ve visit here at home and across the globe. 

Wine. Tunes. Food. Beers.

Happy Sundays!


TICKETS: $35 (+ booking fee)
and include entry, REVEL wine glass and all wine tastes


When we talk about the Pinot and coastal vibes, Geelong has it and in beach spades. Whilst barely an hour out of Melbourne, the fair folk of the region are heading to Melbourne to kick off  this PINOT COAST series the best way they know how.
In short, just bloody good Pinot Noir and chill vibes from an amazing array of local producers with many making their Pinot Palooza debut. If you want a chance to discover your new favourite, and or you next distraction on route to the beach, this is the one for you.

Austin’s, Bellarine Estate, Bellbrae Estate, Clyde Park, Jack Rabbit, Kilgour, Lethbridge, Leura Park, Marcus Hill, Oakdene, Provenance, Scotchmans Hill, Terindah Estate, Yes Said The Seal and more
