Cabin Fever Launches Friday Wine Bar on Instagram

This year Cabin Fever in South West Australia goes digital. Enjoy the South West winter experiences in your living room through a series of online events.

Each week over the coming weeks, you can enjoy experiences online such as mulled wine masterclasses to blind tastings as well as wellness activities, mixology masterclasses, a Friday arvo wine bar and more.

The Friday Wine bar kicks off 15 May 2020 at 6 pm Singapore time on Cabin Fever’s Instagram Live, where the Cabin Fever team will gather some of the most knowledgeable and hilarious cabernet winemakers to guide you through an online tasting. Cath Oates from Oates Ends who is also the acting Chair of Wine Australia, the legendary Bruce Dukes of Domaine Naturaliste and the team from Xanadu will be hosting this session.

‘Cabin Fever Festival started as a means to provide a boost to local businesses in winter when they need it most, and this year they need it more than ever. We encourage everyone to follow along online, purchase south west products and keep our favourite businesses afloat so we’ll be able to enjoy them for years to come.’

Festival Director Brianna Delaporte
