Living Wines tasting at Fins in South Kingscliff
Sue Dyson and Roger McShane from Living Wines will conduct a special informal tasting at Fins in South Kingscliff in northern New South Wales to show a selection of the wines from their portfolio.
The tasting will be held on the 28th April. The address is Fins Restaurant, 5/6 Bells Blvd, South Kingscliff, NSW 2487. The tasting is informal so just drop in any time from 2pm to 4:30pm.
We will have wines from the Loire Valley, Champagne, the Aveyron in central France, the Jura, Gaillac in south-west France, the Languedoc and Burgundy. There will be wines made with Negret de Banhars, Fer Servadou, Gringet, Carignan, Pineau d’Aunis, Trousseau, Gamay, Mauzac, Chenin Blanc, Grolleau Noir as well some better known varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
All our wines are from small-scale family-owned, organic or biodynamic vineyards, they are fermented naturally and either have no additives or just the addition of small levels of sulphites.
We invite both people in the restaurant industry who are looking for exciting wines to add to their wine list or members of the public who are curious about natural wines and wines made from unusual grape varieties.
HANDMADE natural wine expo at Builders Arms Hotel
We are looking forward to participating in the HANDMADE natural wine show at the Builders Arms Hotel in Fitzroy in May. We will join a number of local natural wine producers and our importer colleagues from 12:30 to 4:30 on Sunday 25th May.
We will be pouring the exciting wines of Michel Guignier from Beaujolais and Dominique Belluard from the Savoie. But you might also see us sampling the ethereal wines of Jean Francois Ganevat from the Jura at Andrew Guard's stand or the amazing wines from the lovely people from Cantina Giardino at the Vini Imports stand or the stunning Sancerre wines made by Sebatian Riffault imported by Eurocentric.
And we will also take the time to enjoy some local wines from Tom Shobbrook, Pat Sullivan and Anton von Klopper among others.
