The Long Table - Winemaker Lunch

Winemaker Rowly Milhinch

Winemaker Rowly Milhinch

We're stretching out the bookshop tables for another long table winemaker event. This time join next generation winemaker Rowly Milhinch from Scion in Rutherglen - one of Victoria's premier food and wine regions.

Rowly is a great-great-great grandson of George Francis Morris, the founding father of Morris Wines (est. 1859), and uses this family pedigree to juxtapose tradition in a contemporary way. His winemaking style has evolved through inspiration from France and food in a winemaking process completed by hand to ensure place and seasonality are reflected. Rowly's wine style seeks to highlight elegance and structure – but in the most unexpected ways.

To whet the appetite we'll begin with a 2017 Rosé on arrival. Made using early-season, hand-harvested durif it's a dry, savoury rosé that'll perfectly ease you into the main event. Other featured wines include* :

2016 Viognier
2016 Syrah
2014 Durif
2015 "After Dark" fortified Durif

Wines may be subject to change

Complemented with a menu created by Head Chef Steven Sweeney, we invite you to sit back and indulge in a lazy afternoon lunch with this gregarious, multi-award winning winemaker!

Tickets: $95pp
Includes five wines, four course lunch & tea/coffee
