Savaterre - Tile 1080x1080-min

Meet the Winemaker – Savaterre

On Thursday 25 August join us for an opulent feast exploring the stunning wines of Savaterre. This intimate evening will be hosted by winemaker Scott Sharland and our very own Foni Pollitt.

Savaterre has a faithful following among critics and sommeliers around the world, having been compared to the noble Grand Cru wines of Burgundy and winning countless accolades. 

Having nurtured a passion for fine wine over many years, winemaker and owner Keppell Smith decided to take the inevitable step of starting his own winery. He searched Australia for the best terroirs and fell in love with Beechworth, Victoria. 

“The region is renowned for premium wines, with Savaterre at the apex of these producers. The fruit is farmed organically, the wines made with no additives aside a small amount of sulphur. The resulting whites and reds are recognised as cult wines of exceptional pedigree.” – Mike Benny

Tickets are $159.00 +BF and include 5 courses with matching Savaterre wines. Bookings essential.

A Conversation with Peter Leske – Explore Vinous Exotica

Peter Leske may not be a name well-known to the everyday wine drinker, but his influence is felt keenly amongst the Australian wine industry and ripples throughout the globe. He joins us at Mayfair Lane for a four course dinner and intimate conversation, leading a tasting through a dozen examples of “Vinous Exotica” that a decade ago no-one would have dreamt of drinking.

Tickets are $99 +BF and include 4 courses and a guided tasting of 12 wines. Bookings essential. 

About Peter

Peter’s resume is expansive and deeply impressive – he’s a grape grower and contract winemaker for over 30 clients around South Australia, and well as part owner of two boutique brands – La Linea and Vertigo. He has worked around the world with a veritable who’s who of serious marques: Grosset, Dujac, Graillot, Nepenthe, L’Arlot, as well as mentoring some of this country’s young stars, such as the late Taras Ochota, of Ochota Barrels.

He spent 5 years at the The Australian Wine Research Institute, is a highly sought-after wine judge whose writing has been featured in Jancis Robinson’s Oxford Companion and was named Australian Society of Viticulture and Oenology Winemaker of the Year 2020. Just a couple of accolades to speak of then!

“Peter has demonstrated excellence in winemaking. He undertakes a diverse range of modern, innovative and traditional winemaking techniques, balancing creativity with technical precision and customer and consumer expectations. He has sought to think outside the box, finding innovative ways to deal with challenging vintages.”  – ASVO citiation

It is not just the breadth of experience that makes Leske’s career so impressive, but his commitment and generosity in sharing his wisdom. “I have worked with so many talented people during my career who have given generously of their time, knowledge and skills. I hope I can follow their lead and continue to share my knowledge with those around me.”
