Bar Brose dinner 24th November 2016 with Philippe and Tony Bornard

We have teamed up with Sydney’s award-winning Bar Brosé for a dinner with both Philippe Bornard and Tony Bornard. We have arranged for an interesting selection of the wines of both Philippe and Tony to be matched to the clever cooking of chef Analiese Gregory.

The dinner will be held on the evening of 24th November. So those of you who have enjoyed these amazing wines over the past years, here is your chance to meet them both in person and to enjoy the wines and the food as well.

For bookings or further information email:

events@barbrose.com.au

We look forward to seeing you there!

There will also be a special lunch at Franklin Restaurant in Hobart cooked by chef David Moyle on Sunday 20th November at 2pm matched to wines made by Philippe and Tony. Book early so that you don’t miss out.

Lots of new arrivals in November

We will soon be receiving another container of wines from France which will include a lot of old favourites including the much-loved Moussamoussettes from the Mosse family (as well as their other wines), more wines from both Tony Bornard and Philippe Bornard from the Jura, another shipment from Jolly Ferriol in Roussillon including their stunning rose pet nat, the ever-popular wines of Fanny Sabre from Burgundy, more Jura wines from Michel Gahier and l'Octavin, the lovely Gaillac wines from Patrice and Virginie at Causse Marines, the no-sulphur wines from La Paonnerie in the Loire, wines from Laurent Lebled (also from the Loire) including his orange Sauvignon Blanc, the new releases from Mylene Bru, a Cote Rotie from Jean-Michel Stephan, the latest wines from Domaine de la Cadette and Domaine Montanet-Thoden from Burgundy, the beautiful Muscadet wines from Marc Pesnot, the sparkling wines from Les Capriades and the next shipment from Jacques Fevrier from the Loire.

And if that is not enough we will also be introducing the wines of two new producers. We have been fortunate enough to meet Jean Ginglinger whose family has been making wines in Alsace since 1610! He agreed to supply us with his amazing wines and we are very excited about their arrival. While he makes some classic Alsace wines he is not afraid to venture outside the square, so we will be presenting an orange Pinot Gris and an oxidative Riesling along with more classic wines.

In addition we will be introducing a young producer from Roussillon, Michael Georget who is making extraordinary wines including an extremely delicate Syrah along with a number of single variety wines made from Grenache Noir, Pinot Gris, Macabeu and Mourvedre and a blended rose made from old vine Carignan and Grenache.
