The hard drinking marsupial got to sample some of the local wines in Adelaide, Australia, even seeming to sniff them like an expert.
Hard drinking KOALA named ‘Drinky Bill’ becomes an unlikely internet celeb after pics of him hitting the hooch go viral
Nicholas Dugmore always hoped he would see a koala and made the most of the opportunity when he finally did.
After working at The Lane Vineyard for two years he got his wish and managed to capture the encounter on video.
The bear has become a viral sensation and been dubbed Drinky Bill by his new found fans down under.
The name is a play on the Aussie kid’s TV show Blinky Bill about a koala.
Nicholas can be seen taking the chardonnay from a barrel before putting it into the wine glass.
He then holds the glass out towards the koala who sticks his nose into the glass.
Nicholas swirls the wine before the koala pulls away.
Although Nicholas was startled when he first saw the koala sitting above the stairway, the Dinky didn’t seem phased.
He told Daily Mail Australia: “I didn’t think he’d put his nose in the glass and have a sniff.
“It was perfect timing, I guess it’s a pretty random smell for him so he was pretty intrigued.”
