Corks N Forks - April Update

Dear Members

Our “Iberian” tasting tour at 6pm in the Vintage Room 24 May, $90pp. There’ll be around 12 wines to taste, starting with several sherries from Jerez, followed by some interesting reds and whites from Spain and Portugal, and finishing up with some ports from Portugal and maybe a Pedro Ximenez from Spain.

For those who’ve not been before, our ‘tasting/tours’ are relaxed, informal and educative evenings designed to appeal to members and their guests seeking an introduction to the wonderful world of wine or to expand their existing knowledge. Held in the seated comfort of the Vintage Room and limited to 15 places. The wines are served in several flights, accompanied by small food courses to match the wines.

This year’s trip away to Hahndorf and the Clare Valley in South Australia from 13 – 17 June. Itinerary to be confirmed; however expect to assemble in Enzo’s restaurant in Adelaide for dinner on the Wednesday night, and then travel by bus the next day to Hahndorf and then on to the Clare Valley for three nights staying at the Clare Country Club. Then it’s back to Adelaide on the Sunday to do as you wish.

While in the Clare Valley we’ll visit some interesting wineries; see the sights, including ‘Martindale Hall’ - featured in the movie ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’, and the historic ‘Sevenhill Estate’ - which remains in Jesuit ownership and produces beautiful table and sacramental wines; and discuss it all at night over three good dinners. This will be our 4th ‘odyssey’; the previous three being to the Barossa, Rutherglen and Beechworth, and the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley. They’re a lot of fun. If you’re interested in joining us, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Please note, Bests Wine Dinner postponed until later in the year, new date to be advised. Apologies for the inconvenience
