We have moved our annual Grange event from June to September. We will open bookings to Members on the 15th July (non-members 29th July). The Grand Grange lunch will be limited to 50 guests, however if restrictions are further eased we will contact those on the waiting list in the order received .
Each year we celebrate Hunter Valley Wine & Food Month by pitching Australia's most iconic wine, Penfolds Grange against three of our local icons. This year sees another stellar Grange, the 2012, up against our Hunter Valley icons. As many of you will recall, 2012 was a very poor vintage in the Hunter but we didn't want to miss seeing the 2012 '100point' Grange so we have opted to put it against our 2013s.
These four incredible wines will be presented to you in Riedel glassware as a 'blind' bracket. Name the wines correctly and you will enter in the draw to win an Icon Pack valued at over $500!
You can taste the wines any day throughout September or join a Saturday Masterclass for no extra charge hosted by one of our leading wine educators.
Masterclass bookings will open to Members on the 15th July (non-members 29th July).

The Grand Masterclass
This is the grand highlight of our Grange series. We have some very exciting news to come about the host of this year's Grand Grange Masterclass but suffice to say we are very honoured.
For the Masterclass you will be presented with a bracket of four wines: the divine '100 point' 2012 Grange plus three of our Hunter Valley icons. You will be guided through this incredible bracket of wines by our very special guest and after a cleansing glass of sparkling on the terrace you will be joined by our winemakers and treated to a stellar lunch designed by chef Andy Wright to showcase the new-release 2018 Shiraz. 2018 was another fantastic vintage in the Hunter Valley so we look forward to showing them off.
Bookings will open to members on the 15th July (non-members 29th July).
