Urban tasting with Peter Beckingham

Please note that the Saturday tasting has been cancelled.

Beckingham Wines is a family-owned winery hidden in a small factory in Moorabbin, only a 24 km drive from the CBD. Peter Beckingham, with the assistance of his wife Ann, crafts a range of sparkling, white, red and fortified wines.

A passionate Chemical Engineer as well as Chief Winemaker, Peter Beckingham crushes and ferments grapes sourced from trusted growers. Maturing and bottling also takes place in the factory. Peter brings state-of-the-art technology to winemaking, using techniques such as reverse osmosis and electrodialysis.

Peter also offers his services, including sparkling wine production, smoke taint removal, salt reduction, alcohol reduction and bottling to other winemakers.

Peter will talk about his winemaking and demonstrate the process of disgorging sparkling wines, and you’ll be able to taste a selection of his wines. As well as ‘the usual suspects’ like Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, you’ll find some unexpected gems such as Sparkling Marsanne, Fortified Cabernet and a Pinot Gris Liqueur.  In recent years Peter has developed an interest in beer and has recently produced a lager, ale and stout, which you’ll also have the opportunity to taste.

Tea, coffee, sandwiches and nibbles will be provided.
