Corks 'n' Forks April

Dear Members,

The next event on the Corks ‘n’ Forks calendar will be another in our series of tasting/tours in the Vintage Room on 11 May. The theme will be ‘Comparing Australian Wine Regions’, and will involve the onerous task of tasting a well-chosen selection of 12 red and white wines highlighting the differences between the same grape variety grown in different Australian wine regions – eg Cabernets from Margaret River and Coonawarra, Pinots Noir from Tasmania and the Mornington Peninsula, Semillons from the Barossa and the Hunter Valley and so on. Given our wine regions range from the Granite Belt in Queensland to Hobart in Tasmania, the regional differences can be profound. They are certainly most interesting.

The wines will be served in 3 or 4 brackets interspersed with some great food specially chosen by the Club’s Executive Chef Rebecca Kay to complement the wines.

Our tasting/tours are relaxed, informal and educative evenings designed to appeal to those members and their guests seeking an introduction to the wonderful world of wine or to expand their existing knowledge. They’re held in the seated comfort of the Vintage Room, and as only 16 places are available I suggest you book early.

Bookings can be made by contacting the Club’s Events Team on 8273 2320, or sending an email to

You might also like to mark in your diaries our annual trip away, which this year will be from 7 to 11 June. This will be our third food and wine ‘odyssey’ and we’re in the process of deciding where we’ll go. Our previous destinations have been the Barossa and Rutherglen/Beechworth, and for this year we have a number of good food and wine destinations on our radar. We’ll keep you posted.
