WINE merchant Humble Grape is hosting a belated Australia Day celebration on the 30th January at The Haciendas Club. Paying homage to Australia’s wine heritage, guests will be invited to swirl, sniff and sip a selection of the finest drops from downunder.
Be treated to six premium Australian wines from the best Aussie artisan producers: Jacques Lurton Islander Estate (Kangaroo Island), First Drop Wines (Barossa Valley and Mclaren Vale) and Carter Marybrook (Margaret River). With two whites and four reds there will be something for everyone, as you journey through Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, and some lesser known varieties.
Wine naturally pairs with food and it has been proven that matching the two correctly can enhance wine’s flavours. Accompanying the six hand-crafted wines, will be a selection of delicious cheeses, Iberico Jamon, chorizo, marcona almonds, olives, artisan bread, and wonderfully aromatic olive oil from Salamanca, Spain, to nibble on along the way.
Humble Grape’s resident Australian winemaker Cameron (ex Innocent Bystander/Giant Steps, Yarra Valley) and the rest of the team will be on hand throughout the night to guide guests through each glass. At the end of the evening guests will be able to purchase the hand-crafted wines they have tasted.
This wine tasting event offers Australians a great opportunity to network and share their passion for wine and food within a small community of aficionados. A superb mix of professionals from all backgrounds and industries, novices and wine enthusiasts alike, everyone over the age of 18 is welcome to attend.
