Henschke Feature

The Henschke/Best's Black Tie Dinner is on 20 November, when we’ll have the unique opportunity to taste comparable wines from each of these 2 iconic Australian wineries. The symmetry is intriguing. Both are long-established family owned producers – Best's was established in 1866 at Great Western in Victoria and Henschke in 1868 at Keyneton in the Eden Valley in South Australia. Both make some of Australia’s best wines and feature prominently in Langton’s Classification.

The wine list with matching menu is detailed below.
