In Pour Taste: Fine wine and a sublime time

In Pour Taste

Hosted by Sweeney Preston and Ethan Cavanagh at ReWine in the CBD, this comedy wine-tasting experience is a fantastic concept that's executed flawlessly.

Their sold out run at this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival speaks for itself – In Pour Taste is a must-see show for anyone who loves comedy and wine. Lampooming the spirit of wine tasting with cheek and charm, In Pour Taste is a delightfully full-bodied journey into the world of parody and Pinot Noir.

This cleverly structured show combines the atmosphere of a fun night out at a bar with flawlessy executed comedy, all while tasting an array of hand selected wines courtesy of the ReWine bar staff. The wine is exquisite and the good folks at ReWine certainly weren’t stingy with their pours.

It can be a hard ask to commandeer a room full of increasingly drunk audience members, but Sweeney and Ethan’s engaging energy keeps the audience captivated – all the while looking particularly dapper in their POLITIX suits.

The concept is fantastic and the execution is flawless. With Sweeney and Ethan’s excellent control of the room and the sommelier’s expert guidance, you’re sure to have a great time. For just $50, you’ll get your moneys worth with five glasses of wine and the added bonus of an on-board sommelier to take you on a wine tasting journey aided by the sharp witted banter of the comedians. So grab some friends, head to ReWine in the CBD, and enjoy a night of laughter, great wine and good banter. They even have alcohol-free options if wine ain’t your (grape) jam.
