Our Masterclass & Dinner series have been a huge success and we are very excited about our Loire Masterclass & Dinner on Thursday 27th April. Our good friend, renowned French wine importer and Loire expert Rob Walters will play Tour Guide at this wonderful event where we will discover more about some of the most exciting ‘new’ wines from France. With the prices of Burgundy, Chablis, Bordeaux etc continuing to soar ever skywards, these relatively undiscovered gems provide us with superb alternatives for brilliant drinking.MORE
Rob will lead us a journey of discovery through this beautiful region in an informative & entertaining fashion, showcasing premium wines from some of the regions very best producers, including Domaine Guiberteau, Francois Chidaine & Roches Neuves. The whites of the Loire run the gamut of thrillingly fresh & racy to fresh & luscious whilst the reds show an energy and drive that is quite unique and very exciting. We will also taste aged examples to show the incredible potential to be unlocked of these wonderful wines.
There will be 10 wines in the Masterclass, and we will also enjoy some wonderful food to compliment the wines, and for just $85.0pp this is definitely an event not to be missed by any wine lover!

Levantine Hill is a no expense spared, state of the art vineyard and winery in the Yarra Valley. Whilst relatively new they have made huge headlines with the scope & vision of the venture, which includes a brilliant restaurant headed up by Teague Ezard. The wines have taken a little while to gain traction, but under the guidance of Paul Bridgeman (ex Yarra Yering), one of the finest winemaker’s in the country, they are now truly singing. This superb lunch, with Paul as host will showcase the full gamut of wine produced and promise to be to a true highlight of our Wine Maker’s Luncheon series & we guarantee you will not be disappointed! Get some friends together and join us, we would love to see you!
