Celebrate your Covid safe corporate Christmas party from your loungeroom with an hilarious horizontal wine tasting.

Sommeliers of premium reserve laughs Damian Callinan and Paul Calleja – aka The Wine Bluffs – are bringing their unique label of comedy straight to your remote corporate function.

Perfect for businesses working from home during this crazy Covid climate, Horizontal Wine Tasting with The Wine Bluffs is the perfect answer to your 2020 Christmas party dilemma.

Following on from their sold out live shows across the country, the duo will emerge from their lockdown cellar to present an interactive wine tasting over Zoom (which saves on venue cancellation or precarious plans, in such an unpredictable time). 

Accompanied by a wine tasting pack delivered directly to your door, The Wine Bluffs will ‘lovingly lampoon wine snobbery’ [ArtsHub] in a digital masterclass like no other.

“One of 2020’s unlikely benefits has been the pairing of a wine tasting with jokes in your loungeroom,” Damian Callinan says. “So we’ve removed the commute from the cellar door experience and we’ve taken compulsory pants wearing out of wine tasting.

“This is the perfect show for anyone on witness relocation, under house arrest or who has taken a liking to the lockdown lifestyle.”

‘Wildly funny winespeak, a romp around the vineyard that seeks to demystify the cellar door experience and only leaves us feeling more confused.’ ★★★★ 1/2 – Herald Sun

With private bookings available from the end of November, audiences Australia-wide will also have the chance to sample the show on the 27th & 28th of November as part of the premiere at Melbourne Fringe.

These shows are accompanied by a tasting sample pack from the Murchison-based Longleat wines to be enjoyed alongside the entertainment.

Simply tune in online to enjoy a sip and a show – one tasting pack is recommended per person.

The union of Callinan (Melbourne Fringe Comedy winner and three time Barry Award Nominee) and Calleja (stand up comedian and writer on The Project), is suitable for even the most discerning palate as they prepare to uncork their latest vintage and let the comedy breathe.

‘Holds a mirror up to the hobby of high-end wine appreciation’ ★★★★ – The Age

‘Become a wine connoisseur in one hilarious hour’  ★★★★ 1/2 – The Clothesline
