THERE will be nothing to whine about on Sunday afternoon when The Cellars hosts its inaugural wine-tasting event from 1-4pm at the Byron Bay Surf Club.

With more than 50 wines to sample and complementary local nibbles, this will be the perfect way to finish the weekend.

The Cellars owner Darren Pearson said representatives from a cross-section of wineries would be there.

"It will be a chance to try a wide range of wines while also getting an insight into how and where some of our favourite wines are produced," he said.

"They can answer any questions you may have, including matching food with wines and give some insights into the sometimes difficult-to-understand wine lingo.

"It will be a lovely day of wine and food at one of the most gorgeous locations in the world.

"We are also giving all those attending an early bird discount on the wines showcased on the day."

Tickets are on sale at all Cellar Bottleshops for $20 pre-sale or $35 at the door and include a free Riedel glass.
