Taylors Wines to set sail at Sydney Harbour

South Australian business Taylors Wines today unveiled a new floating Cellar Door at the iconic Sydney Harbour.

Aussies will get to experience Taylors Cellar Door at Sea as the Clare Valley winery will host a wine tasting event at a custom-built glass-lined tasting room set upon a floating barge in the middle of the Sydney harbour.

“For years now we’ve hoped to shed a light on a misconception about red wines – that they need to be served at ‘room temperature’. This is an antiquated recommendation from way back when that actually has a negative impact on the enjoyment of our classic Aussie reds,” said Taylors Wines’ third-generation managing director and Winemaker Mitchell Taylor.

“Taylors Cellar Door at Sea is heading out into the middle of Sydney Harbour to prove just how delicious chilled reds can be, especially during summer. And by combining the perfect view in one of the world’s most notable destinations, we have all the elements to create the perfectly chilled wine experience.”

Guests will depart onboard a private water taxi from the Sydney Opera House jetty and arrive at Taylors floating Cellar Door. While onboard, Aussies  will experience a temperature-themed wine tasting activity, using the new Riedel Extreme range of glassware. British chef-duo, Will Stewart and Steve Flood, will join the Taylors Cellar Door at Sea.

Taylors Cellar Door at Sea sets sail on December 7 – 9.
