WINTER DEGUSTATION

Each season we hold a degustation dinner with food by Crusoe’s on the lake and wines by Robert Oatley. Each seasonal dinner has its own theme and an appropriate vineyard is chosen to match the wines. A guest speaker from the chosen vineyard attends the dinner and comments on each course match.

Our Winter degustation in July sold out with 100 tickets sold. We had seven Christmas in July inspired courses by head chef Jayden Cox & his team expertly matched by Dan on behalf of GIESEN wines showcasing their range from New Zealand.

Each season we hold a degustation dinner with food by Crusoe’s on the lake and wines by Robert Oatley. Each seasonal dinner has its own theme and an appropriate vineyard is chosen to match the wines. A guest speaker from the chosen vineyard attends the dinner and comments on each course match.
