Grange vs Hunter Tasting Experience

Venue: Wine House Hunter Valley

We have tentatively moved our annual Grange event from June to September. We will open bookings to Members on the 22nd June (non-members 1st July) with no payment taken. When we are certain the event can proceed will take payment for all bookings made. 

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 June or join a Saturday Masterclass for no extra charge hosted by one of our leading Hunter winemakers.

Masterclass bookings will open to Members on the 22nd June, general ticket sales open 1st July.

The Grand Masterclass

This is the grand highlight of our June Grange series. We begin the afternoon with a Grange Masterclass led by winemaker Andrew Thomas followed by a superb lunch focusing on the stellar 2018 reds. 

For the Masterclass you will be presented with a bracket of four wines: the devine ‘2012 Grange plus three of our Hunter Valley icons. You will be guided through this incredible bracket of wines by winemaker Andrew Thomas. Then, after a cleansing glass of sparkling on the terrace you will be treated to a stellar lunch designed by our chef Ros Baldwin to showcase the 2018 reds from our great range of winemakers.  2018 was another fantastic vintage in the Hunter Valley so we look forward to showing them off. 

Masterclass bookings will open to Members on the 22nd June, general ticket sales open 1st July.
