The Wine Bluffs

Three time Barry Award nominee, Damian Callinan, and his trusty partner-in-wine, Paul Calleja, join forces as the self-styled sommeliers of comedy: The Wine Bluffs.

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 Wine Bluffs take the audience through an interactive master class identifying the biggest Wine Wanker along the way [if you have a Winestate subscription and a Vintec fridge set on two temperatures, its probably you].

Callinans ability to read wine auras is revolutionising the wine industry as is Callejas creative gift for pairing food to wine. Once the audience is deemed ready they then take the audience on a virtual wine bus tour where they can put all they have learnt into practice.

From an audacious experiment at the Yarra Valley Grape Grazing Festival 2014, the show has enjoyed sell outs at Adelaide, Melbourne & Perth Fringes and attracted invites to the Barossa Valley Vintage Festival, Beauvine Festival in Perth, and numerous corporate entertainment bookings.

Warnings: Show is 18+ due to subject matter revolving around alcohol. Strong language and adult themes.
