Italy is a country that is swimming in wine, but how do you decide which wine to buy? We have made it our personal mission to try as many Italian Wines as we can, from the brooding Barolos, produced in Piedmont in the North, to the sunshine vines of Sicily in the South, Italy has something for everyone. The range of styles varies tremendously; there are sweet effervescent bubbles, stylish roses and of course their red wines that they are renowned for. This is a great opportunity to try wines from different regions side by side. We will also be serving wonderful Italian cheeses and charcuterie as an accompaniment, so we can immerse ourselves in all things Italian.

A very special evening with two of the greatest winemakers from the Barossa Valley. Grant Burge's family history in the region dates back to 1855, with their outstanding Meshach Shiraz one of Australias most iconic wines. Their chief winemaker Craig Stansborough has been with the company 24 years and was AUS winemaker of the year in 2014. St Hallett has been producing fine wines since it was established in 1944. No one knows the Barossa Valley better than senior winemaker Stuart Blackwell, who has been making wine there for over 40 years. These two produce wines from some of the oldest vineyards in the world. Craig and Stuart know the nuances of the region intimately, the seasons, the soil, and the varieties. They have a deep understanding of the rich tapestry of site and climatic variances, but also an appreciation of the importance of dedicated growers and ‘old vine’Shiraz.

The 2016 Burgundy vintage was very complicated. You would almost think that they are getting used to this in Burgundy now, as they seem to be constantly challenged by the weather, but 2016 seemed to throw everything at them. However, the Burgundians have managed to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear and produced a stunning vintage. There is a draw back and that is that yields are down, so much so that it is being described as a rare vintage. The wines are generally thought to be more classic and less weighty, with intense fruit and fresh aromatic qualities. These wines are classic and unique and this is a great opportunity to gain insight in to this tricky vintage. We will taste two wines from four producers.
