SATURDAY JUNE 24 | 2pm - 3.30pm
Mac Forbes

Mac | FB Event Page.png

The way we talk about the Yarra Valley and its various climats have been moulded in part by the fastidious work of this one man.  His wine-making style is readily identifiable by the lack of his intervention.  His wines speak of place and his philosophy:  purity, finesse, elegance, translucent.  Meet Mac and see for yourself.

SATURDAY JULY 8 | 3pm - 4.30pm
JAMSHEED with Gary Mills

Gary Mills is making some of Australia's most compelling wines.  He has sourced excellent fruit from some of Victoria's most distinguished sites.  His wines are naturally made with long macerations, wild yeast fermentations, high amount of whole bunch, judicious use of oak, no additions, sulphur, fining or filtration.  One of Australia's bright stars!

SATURDAY JULY 22 | 2pm - 3.30pm
ALLIES with David Chapman

David Chapman established Allies in 2003.  His wines from the Mornington Peninsula exude texture.  David looks for rich, silky and perfumed Pinot.  He showcase the diversity of soils and climates on the Peninsula.  We will be tasting his range of Mornington townships with a back vintage thrown in for good measure.  This is benchmark Mornington Peninsula wine.
