Wine House Hunter Valley


June 2022
Grange vs the Hunter
Wed, Jun 1, 2022 - Thu, Jun 30, 2022
Venue: Wine House Hunter Valley

Each year throughout June, we pitch Australia's most iconic wine, Penfolds Grange against three of our Hunter Valley icons. This year sees the amazing '100 point' 2015 Grange up against our local heroes.

We present the four wines to you in Riedel glassware as a 'blind' bracket (4 x 30mL pour). Name the wines correctly and you will enter the draw to win an Icon Pack valued at over $500

2015 was an incredible vintage for Grange, and this year we have decided to pitch it against an equally stellar vintage here in the Hunter, 2017. This year we will be tasting 2015 Penfolds Grange, 2017 De Iuliis Limited Release Shiraz, 2017 Mount Pleasant Maurice O'Shea Shiraz and 2017 Tyrrells Vat 9 Shiraz. 

There are three ways you can take part in this month long festival of Shiraz:
