  • What wine should you put away as an investment for that special occasion or time? 
  • What do the sommeliers look for when judging the long-term prospects of a wine?
  • Members are offered the opportunity to learn about a specific grape variety and through tasting, what to look for in a wine to cellar – or not.

This is the third session following our successful Pinot Noir and Shiraz sessions. Again this will be a vertical tasting of five(5) wines.  Food, wine, glasses and expertise will be provided for each session

We have been fortunate to secure the expertise of Mr Tom Hill of Juniper from Margaret River as our presenter.

Tom Hill studied winemaking at the University of Adelaide before working in France across two harvests in 2008 and 2009. He moved to Melbourne in early 2010 to further his winemaking career, basing himself in the Yarra Valley for the next seven and a half years. Lured home to the family business on the promise of “not a lot of work” and a “heap of money” (or was it the other way around?) by his brother at the end of 2017, he hopes to realise his family’s vision to make wine that ranks among the best in Margaret River.

To conduct these we need a minimum of 14 people. Interested?
