Dear Members – I’ve three things to report this month.
The first is that the itinerary for our trip to the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley from 12-17 September has been finalised, and those already taking part have made reservations at our reciprocal clubs - the RACV Resorts at Cape Schanck in the Mornington Peninsula and Healesville in the Yarra Valley. If you’re interested in joining us you’d better be quick, so if you would like some more information, please ring me on 0411 103 119 or send me an email to [email protected].
The second is that our ‘tasting/tour’ in the seated comfort of the Vintage Room on 10 August titled ‘Orange Wombats’ was another great success, with Club members Ben Crossing from Angullong Wines in Orange and Ian Napier from ‘Wombat Crossing Wines’ in the Hunter discussing the regional differences of the 12 wines they presented on the night. Chef’s matching 3 food courses were of their usual high standard.
Finally, an early heads up about our annual Black Tie Henschke Dinner, this year scheduled for Friday 24 November with a ‘Roses’ theme. Planning is well underway, and we’re now putting together the menu and wine list. The feature wine will be the hard to get and highly acclaimed Henschke 2012 ‘Hill of Roses’, produced from select parcels of shiraz grapes grown in the Hill of Grace vineyard from cuttings taken from ‘grandfather’ vines around 30 years ago.
There’s already much interest in the dinner, so it might be a good idea to book early. You can do so by contacting the Club’s Events Team on 8273 2322, or sending an email to [email protected]
