7th September - 'A mediterranean Dinner' Pop-Up Dinner & Wine Pairing (SOLD OUT)

7:30pm - 9:30pm

We are very lucky in this country to have a plethora of global cuisines available to us at just the click of a button! For us though, there are few better cuisines that are not only so incredibly versatile, but also pair so beautifully with wine, than that of the Mediterranean. Laura (Pop-Up Reading/Nomad Bakery) will once again be showing off her culinary skills as we explore the foods of the Mediterranean that have put their country on the map, with wine to match!

Unfortunately this event is now sold out. 

21st September - 'We Explore' Grenache

7:30pm - 9:30pm

Our next instalment of Varietal Evenings. For this tasting we will be exploring one of the wine world's underdogs - Grenache. Responsible for some of our finest Rhone wines, both red and white, and some absolute worldies from the New World, Grenache really is such an important grape, but has often had a poor reputation for mass-produced low-end wines. Join us as we put that reputation to bed!

28th September - An Evening with Tasca (SOLD OUT)

7.30pm - 9.30pm

The large Regaleali estate, high in the central Sicilian hills, has been in the hands of the Tasca family since 1830. Ever since, the property has been run according to the best principles of the agricultural aristocracy: with one eye on quality, the other on experimentation. Tasca’s large range is the product of the family’s most successful innovations. Even now, forty grape varieties from all over Europe are planted just for experimental purposes, with the possibility of making the grade in the future. However, there is already plenty on offer in this singularly accomplished range of Sicilian wines.

Unfortunately this event is now sold out.

14th December - An Evening with Chapel Hill Winery (Australia)

7:30pm-9:30pm

Professor Tom Nelson established his vineyards in 1973, around a dilapidated stone chapel he subsequently renovated. Visitors to the cellar soon dwarfed the number of former worshippers. By 1994 there was a need to build a new 80,000 case winery. Successful? Doesn't come close - Chapel Hill is an Aussie phenomenon. In charge today, on behalf of the winery's new Swiss owners, is Michael Fragos, a fervent believer in the quality of the McLaren Vale and twice crowned McLaren Vale 'Bushing King' for his winemaking skills.

Join us as for another fantastic night of Aussie wine as we explore the best of Chapel Hill's portfolio.

But there's so much more to this grape, with stunning examples coming from all corners of the globe. Join us as we explore some of these hidden gems!
