The most popular event on The Builders Arms Hotel pub calendar is back for its fifth year. Handmade 5 will bring together an eclectic group of 40-50 of Australia’s most exciting wine producers, in a complete pub takeover for the day.
A wine event with a difference, Handmade 5 ticket holders will be granted access to two floors of wine tastings by some of Australia’s finest wine producers. This event offers an avenue for the public to interact with some of the country’s most dedicated producers and growers, discussing their blends, processes and why they choose low-contact connection with the grape. In celebrating the incredible efforts of the producers, the annual Handmade wine party aims to make the world of wine accessible to an ever-widening audience. In 2018, Handmade 5 intends to expand Melbourne’s wine-loving community, welcoming anyone who loves a good drop to join in the festivities – from novices to experts and everyone in between.
As always, food plays a big part in the day and this year will see The Builders Arms’ famous courtyard rotisserie firing with Chef Chris Watson’s (Cutler & Co.) alter ego ‘Wats-on the BBQ’ laying out an impressive barbecue spread, alongside a selection of low and slow-cooked meats from Meatsmith.
Upstairs cult sandwich shop Hector’s Deli will also be on hand, serving up their signature feel good sangas. The pub’s menu will also be available, with snack specials to suit all of the one-handed eating you will require as you taste your way around the room.
