Corks 'n' Forks September, 2019

Dear Members

Tasting Tour – Thursday 22 August 2019 – ‘Good wines from Unexpected Places’

Our tasting/tour was a great night by any measure. Where else but at your Club could you enjoy 14 carefully chosen wines from around the world with 6 matching food courses for $100? The night began with a sparkling wine from Argentina, followed by 2 white wine brackets, 2 red wine brackets, and a fortified Tempranillo from the NSW New England region to finish. All wines were excellent; some favourites being the 2017 Envinate Taganan Blanco from the Canary Islands amongst the whites, and the 2017 Pietradolce Rosato from Mt Etna and the 2016 Syrocco Syrah from Morocco amongst the reds.

Other 2019 Events

Other events for the remainder of the year are our final tasting/tour on Thursday 10 October – theme tba, our Tasmanian food and wine tour from 29 October to 3 November – fully booked, and our Black Tie Henschke Dinner on Friday 29 November, which this year will focus on the significant contribution to the Australian wine industry made by 4th generation Cyril Henschke.

There’ll be more details in next month’s newsletter.

However you can book now for the tasting/tour and/or the Henschke Dinner if you wish. To do so please contact Ash Hucker from the Club’s Events Team on 8273 2320, or send an email to
