Merrick Watts


More Info

Renowned comedian Merrick Watts is a certified idiot, but he’s also a qualified wine specialist. An Idiot’s Guide to Wine pairs his penchant for pinot with his gift of the gab for a fun festival experience.

Join Mez on a journey through the wonderful world of wine, where he is the idiot but also strangely the expert. Whether you are a connoisseur or an enthusiast, An Idiot’s Guide to Wine has something for everyone.

Get a group of mates together and meet up on the lawn from 6pm to buy a drink or a bite to eat. As part of the show you’ll sample six top wines handpicked by Mez and have a great time while you’re at it. Comedy meets wine, laughter meets learning — and you get to drink!
