Two wine dinners

August 2009

Any of you who’ve been to the Coonawarra will have wrapped your lips around a glass or two of Katnook Estate’s elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. On August 18, at Fix St James (11 Elizabeth Street Sydney Ph 9232 2767), the Katnook winemaker, Wayne Stehbens, will present the Katnook Estate Winemakers Dinner after the Coonawarra Roadshow (which runs from 5.30pm to 8.30pm same day at The Menzies Hotel). Book for the dinner at $95 a head, including the splendid wines on (03) 9682 5000.

And a bit out of town but well worth it if you’re in the area is the Mayfield Vineyard 2008 Pinot Launch dinner at Lolli Redini (48 Sale Street Orange, Ph 6361 7748). And if you haven’t eaten Simon Hawkes’ food, this is a great chance to do so. I’ve seen the menu and I’m hungry. Incidentally, Mayfield is to be congratulated for scoring 5 stars in the 2010 James Halliday Australian wine companion. I’ve included a picture of a couple of Mayfield geese to celebrate the occasion. The vineyard is definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area. And there’ll be a Sydney launch next month — we’ll keep you posted.
