They may not be the winemakers but there is a true story to be shared, and great passion for their wines which you get to experience through our intimate events.
SOLD OUT - We look forward to seeing everyone for another great wine tasting event.
We have lined up some great wines from their range for you to try and all for the sensational price of just $35 including savoury delights from The Vines Cafe and let's be honest... this is the cheapest way to travel the country trying wines and it's right at your doorstep. Bookings essential so please call Nillumbik Cellars on 03 9438 1249 to secure your place, and mention any dietary requirements you may have.
Coming up on Friday the 29th of June we host Behind The Bar with Tim Smith Wines from the Barossa Valley, South Australia at Nillumbik Cellars, 11 Chute St, Diamond Creek from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
This is a great opportunity to prop yourself at the bar and hear more information straight from the people who create the wines, it's informal, free, and once you have tried the wines you can purchase antipasto platters, wine by the glass or bottle and enjoy the relaxed social setting whish has become a regular for many locals who appreciate fantastic wines, at great prices.
Tim Smith creates wines from his Barossa based winery that have critics singing their praise. Tim has concentrated on Rhone varietals and branched on some innovative styles along the way; using influences gained from numerous overseas vintages (Portugal, France and New Zealand).
He has a talent for sourcing exceptional old vine fruit from the Barossa floor, and his Barossa Shiraz and Mataro Grenache Shiraz are some of region's most consistent examples of their respective style. Also watch out for his Bugalugs Shiraz which is a cracking entry level wine.
Wines made under the deft hand of Tim Smith have won countless awards domestically and internationally, one of the more notable hauls was a staggering 12 Gold Medals at the Berlin Wine Show in 2010. The 2010 London International Wine Show also highlighted Tim’s winemaking prowess, he was responsible for 3 Gold Medals and 3 Best in Class, one of the latter being for the Tim Smith Wines 2009 MGS (Mataro Grenache Shiraz).
