Yes, we know it’s the dead of winter. But there’s some small comfort in the fact that it’s even COLDER across the ditch! Despite (or perhaps because of) the chill factor, Yealands produce award winning wines that are loved across the globe. They’re even the current New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year (awarded by the International Wine & Spirit Competition.)

This is the first New Zealand winery we’ve worked with and we couldn’t be more excited! Not only are Yealands making wines that will blow your bobby-socks off, but they are leading the WORLD in sustainability. Sustainable viticulture and wine production is at the heart of everything they do. And we thought Melbourne would be the perfect city to showcase just what they’re achieving. We know you are passionate about your vino and are always interested in seeing – and tasting – new and interesting wines.

Join chief Yealands winemaker, the fabulous Tamra Kelly-Washington, and The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society founder Jane Thomson, as together we work our way through a delicious five course dinner matched with a range of Yealands best. The curtain will soon be raised on the full menu and wine selection – we’re just polishing the details to ensure a stellar performance.

As usual, we’ll be chatting about the wines throughout the night, so you can learn more about their style, flavour profile and origins. But there’s not too much formality – as this is no ordinary wine dinner! The focus is on facilitating fun, fabulous wine discussion at your table, so you can leave with as little or as much wine knowledge as you like.

The Menu

A sumptuous feast of delectable food awaits you! Each of the five delicious courses is matched to the selected wines from Yealands to ensure a completely fabulous culinary experience. Most courses have two wines for you to try and compare.
