Darwin Fabulous Ladies Wine Soiree with Matriarch & Rogue 18 August 2022

Thursday 18th August 2022 6:30pm at Charlie’s of Darwin
Tickets: $149 pp members or $174 non-members

Darwin! This is so exciting. We promised you we’d be back this year, and now we have a date and venue confirmed and a brand new woman in wine for you to meet! Come and join us on 18 August for a truly fabulous evening with Marnie Roberts and her Matriarch & Rogue wines.

Marnie Roberts is a talented and highly respected Clare Valley winemaker who wanted to create wines under her own label that were a tribute to the strong women in her family and the character-filled men that married them. So when she launched her own brand she called it Matriarch & Rogue. So fabulous!

Since those early days her brand has expanded to allow her to experiment and create delicious wines from various SA regions, using new and emerging varieties. We are going to be trying eight different wines from Marnie’s range over dinner.


  • A delicious Five Course Dinner created by the chefs at Charlie’s + Eight Matching Wines from Matriarch & Rogue
  • An introduction (or a refresher course!) to the wines and story of Marnie Roberts and Matriarch & Rogue
  • Be personally hosted by Marnie and Jane Thomson (FLWS Founder)
  • Prizes and giveaways
  • Loads of fun and friendship with other wine loving women

WHAT ARE THE FABULOUS LADIES’ WINE SOCIETY EVENTS ABOUT? This is all about bringing together women who love wine and introducing you to women who produce wine! Over an evening of wining, dining, learning and laughing. Most importantly, as a wine drinker and buyer, you are given the chance to directly support the women who make it. 

WANT TO COME WITH FRIENDS? Great! You can book separately, or together, and we’ll make sure you’re seated together on the night.

THINKING OF COMING ON YOUR OWN? That’s no problem either! Lots of people do. And we’ll seat you with some fabulous wine loving women who’ll quickly become new friends.
