A vineyard at Meeting House Square?

Dublin’s Meeting House Square had a vineyard as Australian International Winemaker of the Year McGuigan Wines celebrated its Irish roots with the launch of McGuigan City Vineyard recently.

The pop-up vineyard opened for for four days from September 5th to 8th allowing visitors to walk among the vines and be amongst the first to taste McGuigan’s new release ‘S’ Semillon Blanc and Black Label Rosé wines.

The city centre space was transformed into a slice of Australia’s Hunter Valley wine region complete with over 100 living, breathing 70-year-old vines, a cellar door, wine barrels and even a tractor.

Officially opened by Australia’s Ambassador to Ireland Mr Bruce Davis,alongside McGuigan company founder and director Brian McGuigan and Chief Winemaker Neil McGuigan.

Neil commented, "I hope Dubliners and visitors to the city will come down to Meeting House Square over the next four days to sample our award-winning wines and spend some time chatting to our winemakers”.

He continued, "Dublin holds a special place in my family as our ancestors hail from Ireland – and it was so important to us to come back here from Australia – with our wines, vines and people!”.
