Celebrate the countdown to the weekend at Bacchus with head Sommelier Andrew Giblin as he hosts Vine and Wine Wednesdays.

“It is difficult to quantify why wine is an integral part of any dining experience,” Giblin says from Bacchus.South Bank

“For me, wine encapsulates a moment in time and can conjure an emotion or physical reaction. Recall a memory or be the beginning of a new one.

“It is more than fermented grapes. It brings about passionate discussion and heated arguments and can take you around the world in a moment.”

These free weekly wine tastings provide an ongoing opportunity to sample new drops, and gain insight into the wonderful world of wine as you learn from one of the best in the business. Wines sampled in the past include

Palomino, Semillon, Grenache Shiraz Mouvedre and Shiraz while wine makers such as Steve Flamsteed are also known to pop in.

All are welcome to attend Vine and Wine Wednesdays at Bacchus’ South Bank location and no bookings or reservations are required.

Bacchus South Bank features three unique settings: an outstanding restaurant offering Modern Australian cuisine; a bar (which was recently named one of the World’s Best); and a pool bar which allows visitors to make the most of Brisbane’s year round temperate weather.

Stunning interior design, groundbreaking music and outstanding service combine to create an alluring energy that is redefining Brisbane’s luxury nightlife experience. Born from creative global design icon Tracy Beckmann, the truly unique aesthetic of Bacchus South Bank has drawn acclaim.  The bar is a dynamic space buzzing with life and light, featuring a black granite bar with a striking back-lit, amber glass front.
