2016 Events Gallery
We would like to thank Bruce Tyrrell for hosting a great tasting and giving us an insight into Tyrrell's Wines, its history and what makes up this fantastic brand. And of course what an opportunity to have a tasting comparison of Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz wines.
We were extremely happy to host the wonderful Corrina Wright, 6th generation winemaker of Oliver's Taranga for two fun & informative wine dinners at Hotel Centennial. Both events were a great success and tickets sold out within a few days of being released. Corrina shared her passion and knowledge with the guests, offering a unique dining experience and exploration of Oliver’s Taranga’s award-winning wines.
Balnaves Wine Tasting with Peter Bissell 17.8.2016
We sampled an impressive selection of wines with winemaker Peter Bissell that were way under under valued and there was quite a debate on the subject! Quality wines with great complexity in both the whites and reds.
Peter provided an engaging and informative tasting and educated us on the wines of the Coonawarra region. He also brought along a surprise bottle of Balnaves The Blend 2014 to share that hadn't even been released yet and one lucky attendee one the draw prize of a Magnum of Balnaves The Tally Reserve 2008!
As part of Avenir de l'espoir (Future of Hope) Children's Hospital Charity Dinner we combined forces with Colin Fassnidge of 4 Fourteen donate a wonderful exclusive fine wine dining experience in our Methuselah’s Cellar.
The donation included a 3 course dinner cooked by Colin himself and the opportunity to meet him in person. Exclusive use of one of the best private wine cellars in Sydney, a personal Sommelier to be host for the evening and recommend a selection of wines to accompany the menu and talk through each wine at the dinner, as well as a 6L bottle of Two Hands Deer in Headlights which was donated by Cellar Link Marketplace Australia.
The Charity Dinner raised an amazing $206,000 for the Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation and achieved their objective or raising the funds to purchase an advanced lighting system for 2 operating theatres. Well done Shire Society Events For Sydney Children's Hospital for hosting such a successful event and thank you for letting us be part of this and thank you to Colin Fassnidge for donating his valuable time and resources to offer this incredible experience for 12 lucky people.
We couldn’t have asked for a better pairing.
Beautiful chocolate with fantastic wines and none other than the World Chocolate Master Deniz Karaca himself to guide us through the wonderful world that is chocolate and wine!
