The Joy of Wine


Surry Hills’ favourite haunts Chin Chin, Golden Age Cinema & Wild Rover are joining forces for The Joy of Wine event.

The Joy of Wine is a veil-lifting guide to that most sensual of beverages. Long shrouded in mystery, we believe wine should be playful, exhilarating, and most of all, pleasurable. Celebrate the joys of the grape in a multitude of positions, from the wildly exotic to the missionary. The Joy of Wine is an event full of discovery, empowering a whole generation to enjoy wine unburdened by inhibition.

From emerging talent and labels contending for the next Young Gun of Wine Awards to some of the best wines from our blind tastings and editorials for younggunofwine.com, the event will feature winemakers and other pros slinging wines. Sip and spit, or slurp and swallow, whatever takes your fancy. Talk your way through it, or keep your lips sealed. It’s your choice. We’re just here to help you try something new and enjoy things your way.

Presented by Young Gun of Wine, the event will feature 60+ wines from 30+ Australian winemakers across the three venues, over one afternoon.

A selection of eats will be available to purchase from all the venues to balance out the pours.
