Australian Wine Dinner

  • Jul 30, 2011 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please join us on the patio this year for our fifth annual wine dinner night. This year we're going "down under" for some Aussie tucker and wine.  Robert Volz of Pour Wine Bar & Bistro will be our chef and sommelier for the evening.  Expect a fair dinkum menu of prawns from the barbie, "roo" tartare (yes, that's kangaroo), blue-eyed cod, slow-cooked Aussie lamb, plus dessert -- all paired with a selection of sparkling, white, and red wines.  A more complete menu is posted below.  If you've attended one of our past wine dinners, you know this is one yearly event not to miss!

Cheers Mate!

    I shared my experience with a supervisor from Australian at work...she wanted to know more about the Bourrossa region because her friends live there and have their own vinyard! She also wanted toknow about the Roo tartar and the lamb! I was fully impressed and enjoyed every minute with Robert, Stuart , Kim, and my new friends I sat with. What an incredible night! You cannot miss this next year.
