Comedy wine masterclass at Cube Wodonga

Ever wondered what wine goes best with Fairy Bread? Why hasn’t the ‘Champagne Spider’ caught on?

These questions and many more will be inadequately answered by the self-styled sommeliers of comedy, Damian Callinan and Paul Calleja.

After intoxicating sold out audiences across the country, The Wine Bluffs are coming to The Cube Wodonga on Saturday, November 2 to do what they do best – talk crap about wine.

Laying spurious claim to a reputation as renowned wine consultants, the duo – fresh from judging the Fruit Wine Section at The Rockhampton Show – will take you through the cellar door experience with a comedic twist.

They’ll help you match wine to Chiko Rolls, translate over-written bottle blurbs and identify the biggest wine dork in the room. (A word of warning – if you have a wine fridge set on two temperatures… It’s probably you.)

If judging the Fruit Wine Section at the Rockhampton Show is not testament to their standing in the Australian wine industry, then their Famous Australian Wine Series is (even if the Malcolm Turnbull Shiraz didn’t deliver on its potential).

The union of Melbourne Fringe Comedy winner and three time Barry Award Nominee, Callinan, and stand up and writer on Before The Game and countless other TV shows, Calleja, has everyone’s palate salivating as they prepare to uncork their latest vintage and let the comedy breathe.

Enjoy some pre and post-show entertainment in the foyer with live music and free nibbles. Pre-show entertainment begins at 6.15pm.

This show is 18+ due to subject matter revolving around alcohol, with strong language and adult themes.
