WINE connoisseurs, lovers of fine cuisine and those seeking a cultural experience with a difference will all be in their element in Griffith this weekend.

Locals and visitors alike are invited to explore, taste and relax, with the help of the city's talented winemakers at unWINEd, while the annual Sikh games is a sporting spectacle not to be missed.

At McWilliam's Hanwood Estate for the first time people can indulge in a vertical wine tasting session.

Cellar door manager Karin Penninga described it as having bottles from the same winery, that are spread out over a number of vintages.

"If you have ever wanted to see, smell and taste what ageing does to your wine, then this is the way to do it," she said.

"It's nice to compare the different years."

Senior commercial and export winemaker Russell Cody will host the vertical tasting session on Saturday at 1pm, but bookings are essential. Other wineries around the region including Baratto, Berton, Calabria, De Bortoli and Warburn will also help visitors unWINEd this long weekend.

Australia's Sikh community will meet in Griffith on Saturday and Sunday to compete in the Sikh games.

The event, held at Ted Scobie Oval in Collina, will feature sports, cultural activities and food.
