Spanish producers (Mara Martin, Palacio del Camino, Meu, La Lloma, Ramon Bilbao)

Spanish wine is an exciting category developed in century of winemaking and progression. 2.9 million acres of vineyards and more than 400 grape varieties, Spain ranks as one of the top wine-producing countries globally. Its diverse terroirs, ranging from the cool, green north to the sun-drenched Mediterranean coast and the arid landscapes of the south, give rise to a kaleidoscope of flavors and styles.

Tempranillo reigns supreme as Spain's flagship red grape, delivering wines of elegance and depth in regions like Rioja and Ribera del Duero. Monastrell thrive in the warmth of regions like Valencia and Jumilla, producing bold, spicy reds. Meanwhile, Spain's white wine scene shines with the zesty Albariño of Monterrei. Spanish wine embodies a rich tapestry of flavours, history, and culture, inviting wine enthusiasts on an unforgettable journey of taste and discovery.

Greek ceramics exhibition with artist Eva Boleti

24th March 

"I love working with clay so much because it always teaches me something about life: if you stretch it, it breaks. If you rush it, it cracks. If you force it, it collapses. If you slowly mold it and allow it to become what it wants to be, it will work with you, much like life."
Drawing from her Greek heritage, Eva Boleti weaves a narrative rich in cultural symbolism, where each clay sculpture speaks of tradition.

From braided hair clay sculptures to the protective evil eye, and terracotta dipped in the Aegean blue glaze, her creations transcend mere functionality, inviting inclusion into a tableau of storytelling.

As guests immerse themselves in Eva's sculptures, the ambiance resonates with the soulful melodies of the rebetiko, echoing the essence of Greek folk music.

The opening day indulges the palate with a selection of the finest Greek wines, from crisp Asyrtiko to robust Xinomavro, ensuring an authentic celebration.

In honor of March being International Women's Day, Eva Boleti's exhibit highlights the creativity of women everywhere.

10% of each sale goes to Penny Marathon, a Greek Australian animal charity, which supports rescue animals in Greece, Australia, and worldwide.
When: Sunday 24th March 2024
Where: Wine Library Downstairs
Time: 3:30pm - 6:30pm

Blind tasting wine dinner 26th September

Joining me will be four of Australia's top Sommeliers that will be part of team Australia. This is the very first time Australia will be competing in this challenge but we have high hopes of bringing the trophy back home!

The idea is to hopefully do a dinner every month, it will be fun, you should come.

Wine tasting Wednesday 30th August

Casual Wine tasting
(standing cocktail style chatting with winemakers)
Wednesday 30th of Aug 6:30pm
On Wednesday 30th we will have Alex from Meadowbank, Jeff from Byrne Farm and Mark from Mount Macleod in Sydney, below you’ll find a little about each producer and a list of the wines they will be presenting. It’s a fascinating line up with Pinot Noir from no less than three states!
Meadowbank, Derwent Valley, TAS – Alex Deane
“Meadowbank’s vineyard is one of the most important in Tasmanian wine; a whole host of the best quality and most interesting Tasmanian wine brands source fruit from it. The label and winery itself has had a bit of a hiatus but renowned winemaker Peter Dredge has teamed up with the Ellis family to kick things back into life.” Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
Mount Macleod, Gippsland VIC – Mark Mathews
Organic Gippsland Values from Caledonia Australis, Mark Matthews is never going to win any awards for marketing or self-promotion, so it’s just as well he’s rather diligent at his day job. The kind of green credentials practiced at this family-owned Gippsland Estate deserves to be applauded. Winegrower-ecologist Matthews has recently passed his 10th year of organic certification and has instigated a weed management program using a combination of firestick and hard labour.
Byrne Farm, Orange NSW – Jeff Burn
Seduced by some fantastic bottles from Australia and France and enamoured by the camaraderie in the Hunter winemaking fraternity Byrne completed his winemaking degree and began stepping his way up the winemaking ladder. In 2007Jeff made his first pilgrimage to Burgundy, landing in the heart of Vosne-Romanée at François Pinault’s Domaine de Eugénie. He would return for the 2014 vintage, by which time he would be heading up the winemaking for the Agnew family’s trio of properties, Audrey Wilkinson, Poole’s Rock and Cockfighters Ghost. Managing the Agnew portfolio exposed Byrne to a wealth of growers across the breadth of Australia’s wine regions. But there was one source he became particularly excited about: the pristine high-country Chardonnay and Pinot Noir he was getting from Justin and Pip Jarrett’s organic vineyard in Orange. So, in 2019, when the time had come to branch out on his own, he took a trip across the Blue Mountains to where he finds himself today making small parcels of high country Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Vinos del Sur
Masterclass and dinner on Patagonia
Two superstar names making wines that challenge some of the best in the world!

We will be tasting two of Argentina's most sought after producers from
Patagonia: Bodega Chacra & Bodega Noemia
Patagonia the region
Lying between 36°S and 45°S (about the same latitude as New Zealand), making its vineyards among the most southern in the world. The region is essentially a desert and the vineyards are mainly located along the rivers (especially the Colorado and Río Negro) that run from the Andes and provide water to irrigate the vines.

As a name, Patagonia might be better known as the maker of jackets and outdoor clothing. But Patagonia the region turns out some stunningly distinctive wines that will make you want to add the name to your wine vocabulary.

Now if Mendoza Malbec is Argentina’s superstar pin up boy at present then Patagonian wine represents the young, slightly more refined, upstart – daring to try something a bit different in order to get recognised. Whilst Mendoza wines can be characterised by their power, fruit and macho qualities, Patagonian wines offer a bit of a twist on the style with cooler minerality and a bracing streak of acidity, perfect for more delicate dishes.

Patagonia is a region worth exploring in person – with or without Patagonia gear – but until that is possible, you can taste it in the wine.
Pierro Incisa della Rocchetta is the grandson of the family responsible for making Tenuta San Guido (Sassicaia). Pierro is a dreamer, he always wanted to do his own thing independent of family ties. In 2004 Pierro heard about an abandoned Pinot vineyard in Patagonia, originally planted in 1932. And so, began what is now Bodega Chacra, generally recognised as the greatest Pinot Noir produced in South America.

Over time another vineyard from 1955 was added along with more plantings. Vineyards are tended using organic and biodynamic practices. The old vines are planted on their own rootstocks, producing tiny bunches with incredibly concentrated flavours. Since 2017, Pierro has been working with famed burgundy wine-maker JM Roulot to produce chardonnay in Patagonia to great acclaim.
Bodega Noemia is owned by Italian wine producer countess Noemi Cinzano (of the vermouth family) and Danish winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers. Hans had been working in a commercial winery in Patagonia when he discovered some very special museum wines in the cellar. Captivated he tracked down the source of these wines; a very special 1930’s planting of Malbec which became the foundation for Bodega Noemia. They fell in love with the place and decided to restore it and return it to its original condition. After buying the grapes from this semi-abandoned vineyard in 2001, their first vintage was made in an old shed belonging to a fruit packing company; they destemmed the grapes by hand at night, and put them in open fibreglass tanks so that they could crush them with their feet. The idea was to get back to basics.
