Learning on the day how the wine is made changes with every vintage and every barrel is a unique experience for you to taste. Question the elements like weather during grape picking or how long have the skins stayed on the fruit, is it natural or added yeast fermentation?
Learn why different plots and clones between generation will also make differences in the palette, in which region is the fruit grown, why is it selected, and what other elements are added to
produce award-winning wine in the Yarra Valley.
Your first tasting experience begins at 10.30am, where you will be guided into an exclusive personal Barrel Tasting experience behind the cellar door for a 1.5 to 2-hour Masterclass. In addition to learning directly from a winemaker, you'll taste wines straight out of the barrels in un-matured state throughout the time allocated for your private experience.
Your next location is the restaurant of Celebrity Chef Teage Ezard,
Ezard at Levantine Hill.
Your next Masterclass experience consists of tasting wine produced from the low yielding vines bursting with intense flavours, which are highly rated and recognised the best in Australia.
Experience 5 wine styles of reserve and single-plot wines, including top-of-the-range and up to $250.00 per bottle tastings. This is a premium, high-end Masterclass in a glass.
The entire experience is set amongst the rolling hills in the heart of the Yarra Valley and within just an hour from Melbourne.
Your pre-booked table is set out for your lunch, which is sure to be an unforgettable dining experience.
Be seated for a gastronomic adventure of up to 9 plates of thoughtfully prepared cuisine to share per 2 persons.
Settle in to enjoy the Yarra Valley's finest produce matched with wine that will dance and stand up on your palette with every mouthful.
Complimenting your meal will be a glass of the Rose or Sauvignon Blanc along with a second glass of either Cabernet Blend or Pinot Noir, the choice is yours.
If time allows, we will add another venue for more tasting experiences local to the Yarra Valley.
