One of the best wine experiences in the world is back…

Glandore’s Burning of the Barrel!

Saturday 25th June 2022

This is not an understatement. In recent years, Burning of the Barrel has been named in the worldwide list of “Top 50 Wine Experiences” by Gourmet Wine Magazine. 

Every year this event just gets better and better and we’re ready to roll out the barrel for the biggest, and hottest event yet!

Cellarhands Members and their guests will be given the first opportunity to join us. Any remaining tickets will be made available to the general public at the beginning of May.
