How is your South African wine knowledge? Does it need a little work?

Well here is your chance to taste some of the best South African wines available in Australia in the first (of many) tastings at REVEL HQ!

Importers EX AMINO and BRAVE NEW WORLD will be on hand showing 40 wines from across the Cape plus it will be a chance to load up the for the long Easter weekend. 

So join us for one very special tasting. For the full list of wines, keep an eye on the socials!

Ticket includes all wine tastes.


Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Yes please. As alcohol is at the event, you must be over 18 to attend. Please bring a valid form of identification with you on the day just to be sure (Passport or driving license).

Are children permitted at the event?
This is always a tough one. The very short answer is yes (providing they are very young), however our events are often very busy, loud and a little hectic so they're really not an ideal place for little people. We suggest getting a babysitter and taking the day off. We’ll bring the wine.

Will tickets be available on the door?
Only if there are any available. But more often than not, ‘no’ as the events sell out prior. We cap numbers to ensure everyone has a great time and it’s not too crazy as we want you coming back. We strongly suggest buying tickets prior to ensure you don’t miss out.

Is there a refund policy?
No refunds on this one sorry! 

I haven’t received my ticket? What do I do?
An automated email is sent upon purchasing tickets. If you don’t receive it, it could be for a couple of reasons. Firstly, check the spam folder as sometimes they get stuck there. Other times, when in a rush to purchase (!), some accidentally enter their email address incorrectly. If that’s the case, drop us an email and we’ll search and resend. But all good, you’ll be in our system.

Do I need to print the tickets.
It’s always easier, yes. But, even better is the eventbrite app which keeps them all on your phone. We’ll scan you in when you arrive.

Tasting, not drinking
We like to think of these events as a tasting, not a drinking, as we want you to experience as many different wine styles on offer. Creating a safe, welcoming and non-intimidating event environment is what we’re all about so any inappropriate behaviour, of an intoxicated nature or not, that is dangerous to yourself and or others, is just not acceptable.

We have a strict ‘no tolerance’ policy so if we witness any of the above, we reserve the right to take appropriate action and have you removed from the venue.

I’ve got a couple of other random questions, what should I do?
Easy. Drop us an email at and we’ll get right back to you.
