This dinner will be very interesting!  We will be pairing wines from Bordeaux alongside Australian wines that pay homage to styles of wine produced in this classic region of France.

We are very excited to welcome Christophe Marty, Export Director for Veyret-Latour, a Negociant based in Bordeaux, France.  Christophe will share with us his knowledge of these wonderful wines from Bordeaux.

We are also grateful to Andy Waldorf of the Waldorf Wine Group for suggesting this interesting event, and for his generosity in providing some of his wines at no cost to us!

Many thanks to Chef Chris Whittaker for providing such a great menu to compliment our wines.  Also thanks to Jessica Boos, Catering Manager, for helping set up this event.
