This year sees the show stopping ‘100 point’ 2008 Grange up against 2009 Brokenwood Graveyard Shiraz, 2009 Tyrrell’s Vat 9 Shiraz and 2009 Thomas Kiss Shiraz.
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 hosted by one of our leading Hunter winemakers.

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 2017 reds.
For the Masterclass you will be presented with a bracket of four wines: the show stopping ‘100 point’ 2008 Grange plus three of our Hunter Valley icons: 2009 Brokenwood Graveyard Shiraz, 2009 Tyrrell’s Vat 9 Shiraz and 2009 Thomas Kiss Shiraz. You will be guided through this incredible bracket of wines by winemaker Andrew Thomas. 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 2017 reds from Thomas, Silkman and Little Wine Co. 2017 was one of the best vintages on record in the Hunter Valley and we look forward to showing them off.
