Cool Climate Australian Wine Dinner


The success of some of Australia’s ultra-ripe wines from hot climate places like Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale has influenced many people’s perception of Australian wine, but increasingly the country has gained an enviable reputation for cool climate wines (from places like Yarra Valley, Tasmania and Adelaide Hills) that rival Europe’s best. During a relaxed and fun dinner in the Great Eastern Hotel's private dining room learn how different climates give the grapes and wines different characteristics, that are both elegant and food-friendly.

Guest speaker Andrew Pirie from Tamar Ridge Estate in Tasmania will guide diners through the wines during the five-course meal.

The evening will begin with a Champagne reception at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £65 per person. Call Michelle Bee on 020 7618 5032 or email to book your place.
