Livewire Wines

Talk & Taste is a monthly series of intimate and informative sessions where guests embark on a journey of discovery with Australia’s best distillers and winemakers. Get to know the product and the craftsmanship first-hand throughout a fun and interactive 90 minute session of sampling and tasting. The beverage menu is matched with mini bites from the Pilgrim kitchen, carefully developed by Head Chef Mike Richards who uses only locally and ethically sourced produce. Talk & Taste is hosted in Pilgrim’s new and unique events space, The Vaults – where the history of the old Princes Walk Vaults is brought to life in Melbourne’s drinking and dining scene.

A chef by trade, Anthony Brain jumped head first into a career change by studying oenology whilst completing his first vintage in the Yarra Valley several years ago. After creating vintages around the country and five years as winemaker at De Bortoli, Anthony began his own venture in 2013 and started to source fruit from the Bellarine, Grampians and Heathcote. Anthony now makes Livewire wines on the Bellarine Peninsula in Geelong. A laid back, low-fi winemaking approach, coupled with a chef’s palate make for truly delicious food wines.
