Offering public wine tastings and wine appreciation courses to the public as well as organising and hosting private events and corporate entertainment, the Sydney Wine Centre has been the home of wine appreciation in Sydney since 2009.
Our public events are held in our intimate tasting room in Pyrmont whilst we host corporate and private events on demand.
With a range of formats, styles and presenters we have an event suitable for everyone, whether you are a first time sipper or an experienced wine w*&ker. We also specialise in training the hospitality industry with creatively designed courses for all levels of service.
Public Wine Events and Courses!
All of our events are based around the concept of "Learn, Taste, Appreciate" where we hope to lead you on your own journey with wine.
To let you choose a suitable event we have broken our events into 4 segments.
Our Wine Appreciation Courses include our flagship 4 Night (1 night a week for 4 weeks) and 1 Day Courses (6 hours on a Saturday) presented by Master of Wine Rob Geddes and a beginners "Introduction to Wine Course" over 2 nights (1 night a week for 2 weeks) or 1 Day (4 hours).
Our "One Night" events have 3 categories; Enjoy (relaxed and suitable for all), Discover (beginners to intermediates), and Explore (intermediate to expert).

WHAT WE DO...
Focus on Enjoyment
Public tastings take place in a relaxed, social atmosphere. From a glass of bubbles on arrival and entertaining and informative presentations, our primary aim is on ensuring guests enjoy themselves.
No Hard sell
Whilst the wines you taste are generally available to purchase, there is no absolutely no expectation to buy. All we want is for guests to enjoy the experience and leave with a greater appreciation for wine.
Something for everyone
Whether you've never had a glass before or are a serious enthusiast, we have a tasting for you. We love to share our passion for wine. We cover all levels from novice to wanker.
No such thing as a stupid question
Learning about wine should be enjoyable, interesting and fun. We love questions and interaction, and the chances are if you're thinking it, someone else is too. So fire away!
